Marcos Alonso on his Chelsea career
“I think it’s been a very positive year. In my first season we had a very good championship in the Premier League and a good run in the FA Cup as well, where we were unlucky not to win the final. I think I’ve improved a lot in that time and I’m becoming a better player every day.
“We work hard here and we have a lot of ambition to win every title, and I think that is also positive for my growth as a player. I’ve always dreamed of fighting for every title, and I always worked for that. Obviously, playing for Chelsea, I’m closer to winning these things.”
Mino Raiola on Paulo Dybala
“I think Dybala will eventually leave Juve.
“He has to go to a team where he gets into a project that is already suitable for him.
“For him it is difficult now to enter a reformed Barcelona, but he would do well at Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City or Chelsea.”
Didier Drogba on Morata
“He is scoring goals that are winning games so I am really happy for him and for the club as well.
“It is very important to score. As a striker, when you start with a new team, people have high expectations.
“When you match those expectations, you are just happy and the goals continue to come.
“I hope he will have a great season because we need that.” (Sky Sports)
Eden Hazard on the Champions League
“This year is really important. I have reached the semi-final with Chelsea [in 2014], when we lost to Atletico Madrid, so it’s in my head to win this trophy.
“I have won the Premier League, I have won the title in France, I have won cups, but big players always want to win the Champions League. I think now it is time to win this. We have a good squad, we have a good manager, so we are ready for it.
“You want to play these kind of games because every time you play in the Champions League it’s a big game and everybody is watching you.
“I hate having to watch it on TV, I just want to be on the pitch. That isn’t a good feeling so yes, we are happy to be back.” (Goal)
