Bolton's Alonso: Big honour to play for Lee

Mikel Alonso says it's a "big honour" to be playing for Liverpool hero Sammy Lee at Bolton Wanderers.

On-loan from Real Sociedad, Alonso told The Times: "It is a big honour to play under him.

"He was a footballer, a top one, and you can tell he is a real professional, one who understands what all this is about. We are all working hard to do our best to help this new project, nobody more than the manager."
