The 47-year-old’s achievements are impressive to say the least. At Barcelona, Enrique won nine major trophies, including the treble in 2015 as the Catalans dominated European football.

When speaking to Cadena Cope, Alonso believes that these accolades have shown why he would be a great fit at any club let alone Chelsea.

Alonso is quoted by Cadena Cope saying:

With the likelihood of Conte departing the Blues at the end of the season, Enrique would provide stability along with a solid relationship with the board.
