Alonso: The differences between Tuchel, Conte and Sarri



Chelsea fullback Marcos Alonso says there’s subtle differences between how Thomas Tuchel wants him to play at wing-back compared to Antonio Conte.

He told the club’s website: “In a global view it’s the same, and then there are some small details that are a bit different. I have different players around me now, and it’s a little bit different what the manager wants from us. Now like the Conte days we are defending well, we are trying to control games but when it’s time to suffer the team is doing well.

“With (Maurizio) Sarri I played in a four at the back and was involved in the most goals in my Chelsea time I think. I don’t think it’s about the system. I am enjoying playing. That’s the most important thing, more than the position. I enjoy playing both.

“Left wing-back is more offensive, maybe a bit less responsibility at the back, and it’s more fun, let’s say, but the most important thing is to help the team with performances and results. That’s my main target and what I work for in training: the good of the team and getting results.”
