Chelsea’s Great Spirit is All Down to a Monthly Meal, Says Marcos Alonso

Chelsea’s Great Spirit is All Down to a Monthly Meal, Says Marcos Alonso

Marcos Alonso has a theory as to why he and his Chelsea team-mates have fostered such a strong team spirit this season, and apparently it’s all down to meal time.

The Spaniard has turned into an integral part of Antonio Conte’s side since his summer move from Fiorentina, and the Blues have stormed into an eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

Chelsea look like certain champions this season, and Alonso has been keen to stress the importance of bonding away from the pitch, as well as forging a great team on it.

Speaking via the Evening Standard, Alonso explained: “We have been going out for dinner once a month all together as a group, just enjoying each other’s company off the pitch as well.

“It’s been a great help and the atmosphere within the squad is amazing.

“You can see that when we’re on the pitch.

“It’s organised by the manager and the captain and it’s good fun for everyone.”

After initially looking like an unlikely signing, Alonso has managed to stand out as one of Chelsea’s best and most consistent performers this campaign, and it seems almost unquestionable that he’ll claim his first league winner’s medal in May.

What do you think of his explanation about team bonding? Can a monthly meal really have such a strong influence?
