CHELSEA

Alonso and Tuchel’s halftime ‘bust-up’

Alonso, Six Sports

When players fall out with their coaches there is no coming back from it. It seems like Chelsea has one of those circumstances and it looks like this time things went too far.

This isn’t the first time we’ve witnessed a Chelsea player causing issues and not being on the same terms with the manager nor this will be the last time. It happened with Ranieri, Mourinho, Di Matteo, Ancelotti, Conte, and almost everyone else who has been a manager at Chelsea.

Alonso and FC Barcelona

News of Alonso and a move to Camp Nou has been in air and with recent developments, we may see this deal happening. Xavi at Barcelona is looking to replace Jordi Alba due to his age. Although Xavi is building a team with youth, Alba may not feature as a regular but his experience will make difference.

Alonso can be a perfect fit for Camp Nou and with his experience, he’s well aware of what it takes. At Chelsea, Chilwell was the first choice for LB before facing a season-ending knee injury. Alonso is in his prime and should look for a game-time even if it means someplace else.

Chilwell can make a return before ending this season. If that happens, we can assume Alonso will be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer. If he stays for another season in hopes to repair his relationship, he may just have taken the wrong road. Frustration not only with game time but also with relations shouldn’t be the preferable choice.

Alonso didn’t even got to play the first half compleytly. In the 2-2 draw vs Wolves, Saul Niguez came on for him in the stoppage time of first half. This lead to a furious exchange between the coach and the player. Alonso has been seen screaming at Tuchel towards the end of stoppage time in the first half. According to reports, decision of substitution player’s in the very first half led to the furious conversation.
This event may have marked Alonso’s final moments at Stamford bridge although the manager denied this news and stated injury behind this decision.
