Gary Cahill: What I think of Chelsea new boys Marcos Alonso and David Luiz


GARY CAHILL has revealed his views on new Chelsea signings Marcos Alonso and David Luiz.

Alonso moved to Stamford Bridge from Fiorentina for £23million on transfer deadline day, while Luiz returned to Chelsea from Paris Saint-Germain in a £32m deal.

Cahill has experience of playing with both of the Blues’ new defenders, as he played with Luiz in his first spell at Stamford Bridge and palyed with Alonso at Bolton.

“He was in that position at Bolton and he is big and tall and strong physically but I remember he is very good technically and he is a great guy. He used to live very close to me.

“I could see the talent he has from training and playing the few games that I did with him. He has a presence.

“I would not say he is as broad as say Branislav Ivanovic but for a full-back he has the stature of a big guy

“David is back and it is very easy for him to slot straight into the dressing room.

“He knows the majority of the players and the staff and he is very familiar with the surroundings.

“Obviously it is great to have him back. He is a great footballer and a massive character.”
