Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso is ‘very happy’ at the club, according to his father.

Speaking to Italian news outlet TMW, the Spaniard’s father Marcos Alonso Peña, who also acts as the player’s agent, discussed his son’s mood at Chelsea, and was more than happy with how things are going.

Alonso is a key man for Antonio Conte’s side, and has nailed down a spot at left wing-back. Since Conte’s change in formation in the early stages of the 2016/17 season, Alonso has featured prominently, and has continued to impress.
