Chelsea boss Sarri: Alonso best in Europe - and could be best in the world if...

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri believes Marcos Alonso is currently the best left-back in Europe.

Alonso was again impressive for victory over Bournemouth.

Sarri said, "Alonso at the moment, in this left-back position, is maybe the best in Europe.

"He has physical qualities at the top level, he's doing very well in the offensive phase but I think he can improve in the defensive phase.

"So if he improves in the defensive phase he could be the best left-back in the world."
