Chelsea wing-back Marcos Alonso was interviewed by the club’s official website. The Spaniard, when asked over his relationship with former Barcelona winger Pedro, claimed: “He is a very good friend and I like to catch up with him after training”.
They attended together a NBA game in London last month: “I didn’t know Pedro before I came here but he’s been a great help since I arrived, – Alonso pointed out – We go for dinner quite regularly and we went to the NBA at the O2 together. I’m not a massive basketball fan but I follow some of the Spanish players. Pau Gasol, who plays for San Antonio Spurs, had a great year, and I always keep an eye out for him. Him and Rafa Nadal are probably the greatest Spanish sportsmen of all time”.
