Marcos Alonso Admits Compatriot Wasn’t Happy After Spain SnubPosted by content on Tuesday, 8 May 2018
Chelsea wingback Marcos Alonso has revealed that Alvaro Morata was not pleased after he was omitted from the Spain squad for their upcoming international friendlies against Germany and Argentina. The 25-year-old went through a tough period with the Blues owing to injuries and a loss of form, and this eventually hampered his chances of making Julen Lopetegui’s squad.
Speaking in a press conference, Alonso admitted that his compatriot was not impressed by the decision, but he is hopeful that the striker can turn it around with a rich vein of form for Chelsea in the tail-end of the season. Meanwhile, discussing about his maiden call-up to La Roja, Alonso stressed that he was never distracted by the international prospects, and it came as a pleasant surprise after he earned his due rewards.
