I have a diesel merc van that gave me same problem . Had new starter fitted by main dealer and all electrics checked but problem still there . Turned out to be glow plug relay , this faulty relay can flatten a battery over night or act like the starter motor is faulty even with a fully charged battery .mercedes next step was going to be change the ecu . I have to change this relay once a year at a cost of £50 it is easy to fit and solves the problem . Neither the main dealer or the mobile vehicle electronics specialist could diagnosed this problem . Hope this helps if it does Happy Christmas

The alternator should be under warranty. Take the car back to the garage that fitted the alternator and get them to check the charging system for nothing. Do not attempt to do it yourself at this stage because you will invalidate the warranty.
Also the old alternator may of damaged the cells in the battery. If the battery is a standard one, check the electrolyte level and top up as needed.
