And he was rewarded with a new five-year contract earlier this season.

Despite enduring a rocky term under Maurizio Sarri, Alonso is still regarded as one of the leading full-backs in English football.

And he has now unveiled the secret skill which set him up for life at the top.

Speaking to Chelsea’s official website, Alonso said: “When I played football with my friends, if we didn’t have a ball I remember we used to play with a crushed can of Coke.

“We would try and make it as close as possible to a football. We would play games for hours with it. Anything would do!”


Alonso has also admitted he started off life at a winger, becoming a left-back later in his career due to injuries.

Alonso added: “When I signed for Real Madrid I was a winger, and then two or three years after I had to play left-back because of injuries.

“I did very well, and I had a chance to go to the second team and play left-back, and that’s where I stayed.”
