‘Goal for my grandad’ Marcos A.
Marcos Alonso spoke to the Bolton News after Saturday’s victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
‘I’m getting more and more confident, I think I can grow from this. Every game I have played, I have played better than the one before. So I will just keep working to get to the top level. It’s not the same as Spain. I think I learned a lot last season and this season you can see in games like Blackburn and today, I have improved a lot.’ Said Marcos.
Bolton gaffer Owen Coyle also had some words on Marcos’ development
‘There’s no question about Marcos in terms of being comfortable on the ball, going forward and keeping it because he was in a Real Madrid team that kept 80 per cent possession in every game.’ said Coyle.
‘The challenge we have is making him a more natural defender. I think he’s improving on that. It’s a learning curve for him and it has been stop-start because of injuries. But like all the young players we have in the squad, Marcos is getting better.’ Said Coyle.
‘At Blackburn he was the best player on the pitch and I’ve said to him, it’s up to him how far he wants to go in the game.
Marcos also spoke to the Bolton newspaper about his goal and dedication for his grandfather Marquitos.
‘It’s my first official goal in England, I’m really happy about it. My grandfather passed away recently and it was for him and the fans from Bolton who came here. He thought it was a really good chance for me to learn and Bolton gave me a good feeling. I’m very happy to be in the best league in the world. I don’t mind staying here for rest of my career.
