Marcos Alonso professes love for Chelsea - 'The club of my life'

Marcos Alonso has professed his love for Chelsea after reaching over 200 games for the club.

The Spanish left-back joined Chelsea from Fiorentina in 2016 after previously playing in England with Bolton Wanderers.

Alonso, 31, has gone on to win the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup with the Blues.

"I have come a long way since then," Alonso told the club's website.

"After a lot of challenges, you grow as a person and a player. It's the experience that can help you the most.

"All the good things, all the bad things, it's what makes you improve and what makes you better. I think I'm a much more mature person now with a big career behind me, and hopefully more to come.

"Chelsea is my home now. It has become the club of my life. I will always have those memories, and I will always have Chelsea in my mind."
