Self-confessed sports fanatic Marcos Alonso sat down with the Chelsea app recently to reveal what other athletic events you might find him in attendance at and who is his favourite athlete away from football.
Our Spanish left-back, who was nominated for both the Premier League’s Player and Goal of the Month awards for February, is the latest member of Frank Lampard’s squad to take part in The 5th Stand’s popular regular feature, ‘90 seconds with’, which is available to watch exclusively on the app now.
While a huge basketball fan, the defender confirmed that he probably prefers tennis and lauded a fellow Spaniard as his favourite player.
‘Other than football, I think I’d pick tennis and golf as my favourite other sports,’ the Spaniard explained.
‘I went to the Wimbledon final last year and that was amazing. I loved watching a great game between two of the greatest players in history, in [Novak] Djokovic and [Roger] Federer.
‘I’d have to say though that my favourite sport star currently is another tennis player, in Rafa Nadal. He is a great example both on and off the court and what he’s done in the sport and for Spain as a country is just amazing. I’m a big fan of his.
‘I’m also a fan of basketball and have been to quite a few NBA games, including the championship final last year between Cleveland [Cavaliers] and Golden State [Warriors] but I think if I had the choice, I’d like to go to either the Superbowl or a boxing fight in Las Vegas.’
