Chelsea fullback Alonso: Luis Enrique would succeed at any club

Chelsea fullback Marcos Alonso has spoken of his admiration for Luis Enrique.

The former Barcelona coach is being linked with Antonio Conte's job at Chelsea and Alonso discussed his fellow Spaniard on local radio yesterday.

He told Radio Cope: “Luis Enrique has shown at Barcelona that he is a great coach with many qualities and I believe he would be good for any club, but I do not know him a lot on a personal level."

Chelsea need to end a run of four straight away defeats when they take on Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League clash next week.

“When we face Barca in the Camp Nou we will have to put in a perfect performance to progress to the next round, this is clear," Alonso added.

“We will go to the match with a lot of confidence and belief in what we are capable of doing, especially after the first leg."

Chelsea first host Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.
