Alonso reflects on important Stoke win
Marcos Alonso put in another man of the match (Sky Sports) performance last night in Sunderland’s 1-0 victory over Stoke City.
The result leaves the Wearsiders 17th in the table and out of the relegation zone for the first time since Marcos arrived on loan from Fiorentina.
“It was an important win for us,” said the Spanish left-back. “We know we still have a long way to go. The confidence is growing amongst the squad and results have been good since I got here.”
“We are now working hard and looking forward to the North-East derby this weekend.”
Marcos enters his first North-East derby this weekend as Sunderland travel to local rivals Newcastle for Saturday’s early kick-off.
