Marcos Alonso Mendoza (Spanish pronunciation: ; born 28 December 1990) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a left back or a wing back for Premier League club Chelsea and the Spain national team.

He started his career with Real Madrid, but went on to make his name with Bolton Wanderers in England and later with Fiorentina in Italy. His success at the latter club led Chelsea to sign him for an estimated £24 million in 2016.

Alonso made his full debut for Spain in March 2018.

Contents Club career Real Madrid Alonso with Real Madrid in 2010.

Born in Madrid, Alonso joined Real Madrid's youth academy as a child, going on to represent every youth side in the following years. In 2008, he reached Real Madrid Castilla which competed in Segunda División B, and first appeared for the reserve team on 22 February 2008, playing the entire match in a 0–1 home loss against AD Alcorcón.[3]

On 11 December 2009, Alonso was first summoned by the main squad – coached by Manuel Pellegrini – for a La Liga match at Valencia CF. Eventually, he did not make the final list of 18, and his debut arrived on 4 April of the following year as he came on as a substitute for Gonzalo Higuaín in the 90th minute of a 2–0 win away to Racing de Santander.[4]

Bolton Wanderers

Alonso joined Bolton Wanderers of the Premier League for an undisclosed fee, on 27 July 2010.[5][6] He made his competitive debut for the club in a League Cup 1–0 away win against Southampton on 24 August;[7] his first league appearance arrived on 1 January 2011, starting for suspended Paul Robinson in a 1–2 away loss to Liverpool at Anfield.[8]

Alonso scored his first goal for Bolton on 31 March 2012, netting the second in an eventual 3–2 success away to Wolverhampton Wanderers.[9] At the end of the 2012–13 season, he was voted The Bolton News' player of the year, winning 37% of the vote: Marc Iles wrote, "...this has been a break-out season for the former Real Madrid starlet. Alonso has grown in stature and become a consistent performer at full-back – chipping in with some important goals too."[10]

In May 2013, Alonso signed for Italian side ACF Fiorentina on a three-year deal, despite being offered a new contract by Bolton manager Dougie Freedman.[11] On 30 December, after the player had made nine official appearances, Sunderland boss Gus Poyet announced that he would join on 1 January 2014, on loan until the end of the campaign.[12]

Loan to Sunderland

Alonso played his first match with Sunderland on 7 January 2014, featuring the full 90 minutes in a 2–1 home win over Manchester United for the League Cup semi-final first leg and was given the man of the match award by Sky Sports.[13][14] He played in the final of the competition on 2 March, not being able to prevent a 3–1 loss against Manchester City;[15] overall he played with 20 appearances all competitions in the season, helping his team retain their top flight status.[16]

Return to Fiorentina

On 19 March 2015, Alonso scored in a 3–0 away win over AS Roma in the second leg of the UEFA Europa League round of sixteen.[17][18] On 24 May, Alonso scored the winning goal in a 3–2 victory over Palermo; securing automatic qualification for next year's Europa League.[19]

On 23 August 2015, Alonso scored Fiorentina's first goal of the new season in a 2–0 win over Milan.[20] A week later, on 30 August, he scored the opening goal in a 1–3 defeat to Torino.[21] On 29 February 2016, Alonso scored and was at fault for conceding in a 1–1 draw with Napoli; scoring in the sixth minute but then a poor clearance from him gave Napoli the equalizing goal just one minute later.[22][23]

Alonso playing for Chelsea against Newcastle United in the FA Cup, 28 January 2018. Chelsea

On 30 August 2016, after 85 appearances and five goals overall with Fiorentina, Alonso completed his move back to England after signing a five-year contract with Chelsea worth around £24 million.[24][25]

2016–17 season

On 20 September, Alonso made his debut for the club, playing the full 120 minutes in a 4–2 win away to Leicester City for the EFL Cup,[26] and four days later he made his first appearance in the league in a 0–3 away defeat to Arsenal, coming off the bench for Cesc Fàbregas in the 55th minute.[27] Alonso scored his first goal for the club on 5 November 2016, in a 5–0 defeat of Everton at Stamford Bridge.[28] On 14 January 2017, he scored twice at the King Power Stadium, in a 3–0 win against Leicester City.[29] On 4 February, Alonso scored the opening goal in a 3–1 win over Arsenal, however, he came under criticism from Arsène Wenger for his challenge on Héctor Bellerín that saw him scoring the goal, as the defender was substituted just minutes later after receiving a heavy blow to head which led to a concussion, but Alonso did not receive a card.[30][31][32] On 8 April, Alonso scored in a 3–1 win over Bournemouth.[33][34] On 8 May, Alonso scored in a 3–0 win over Middlesbrough; relegating their opponents and putting Chelsea on the verge of winning the league title.[35]

2017–18 season

On 20 August 2017, Alonso scored twice in a 2–1 away win over Tottenham Hotspur.[36] On 18 November, he scored in a 4–0 win over West Bromwich Albion.[37] On 16 December, Alonso scored the winning goal in a 1–0 win over Southampton.[38] Ten days later, on 26 December, he scored in a 2–0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion.[39] On 3 January 2018, in the match against Arsenal, Alonso scored a late goal in the 84th minute for a 2–1 lead, only for a late goal from Héctor Bellerín to draw the game 2–2.[40] On 28 January, Alonso scored in a 3–0 win over Newcastle United.[41]

On 14 April 2018, Alonso came under extensive criticism for seemingly purposely digging his trainer studs into Shane Long's leg during a tackle in a league game against Southampton.[42] He was not reprimanded in any way by referee Mike Dean – who came under similar criticism – but was later charged with violent conduct by The Football Association,[43] and later issued a three-match ban.[44] On 9 May, Alonso scored in a 1–1 draw with Huddersfield Town.[45]

2018–19 season

Alonso scored the winning goal in a 3–2 victory against Arsenal on 18 August 2018 at Stamford Bridge.[46]

International career

On 16 March 2018, Alonso received his first call-up for the Spanish national team for friendlies against Germany and Argentina later that month.[47] He debuted against the latter on the 27th in a 6–1 win at the Wanda Metropolitano where he replaced Jordi Alba with 11 minutes left,[48] making the Alonsos the first Spanish family to have three generations of internationals and seventh worldwide.[49]

Personal life

Alonso's grandfather, Marcos Alonso Imaz, played eight years with Real Madrid's first team. His father, Marcos Alonso Peña, played several seasons in Spain's top flight, most notably for Atlético Madrid and FC Barcelona, and both represented Spain at senior level.[50]

Controversy

On 2 May 2011, Alonso was arrested following his involvement in a car accident in Madrid. He was the driver of a car that collided with a wall, killing one of the passengers, a 19-year-old woman, having been driving at 112.8 km/h (70 mph) in wet conditions in a 50 km/h (30 mph) zone, with a blood alcohol level of 0.93 mg per millilitre of blood.[51][52] He faced 21 months in prison when sentenced in February 2016, but his punishment was changed to a €61,000 fine and a driving ban of three years and four months, which had already been spent.[53]
