Not at all and it actually proves my point very well. Alonso is a player that was playing for Bolton in the Championship/2nd division before moving to Fiorentina and now Chelsea in his early 20s. He is Spanish and not a single Spanish club showed an ounce of interest of actually signing him for all these years. Neither him or Moses are good enough for Arsenal or Chelsea for the long term. This is all Conte and his meticulous structuring-the invisible string- as well as maximizing individual+collective potential. I've witnessed him doing it before for Juventus. As I've said countless times now, he won the league without any mentionable strikers unbeaten in Italy and made a confused identity less squad into a relentless winning machine playing superb football. That is how much a impact a manager can make.
