One of the biggest fails of the transfer summer is staying of Alexis Sanchez in Arsenal. Man City was linked with 28-years-old Chilean since the very beginning. But the deal fell through and now Alexis is on the international duty. Apparently, he is able to leave Arsenal for free in the next summer.
But it was not the best beginning of the new season for Sanchez. Chile lost the match against Paraguay last week with 3:0. Then they were defeated by Bolivia with 1-0 last Tuesday night. Now Chile is dropped to sixth in the South American qualifiers.
Probably Chile will not be able to qualify for Russia 2018. Because of this fails some amount of criticism fell on Alexis’ shoulder: how will he perform 2017/18 campaign for Gunners; did he lose a shape?
After Bolivia game, Alexis gave vent to frustration in social media. He wrote: “You are tired when somebody criticizes you with reason or without, you are tired of wanting to be defeated, you are tired of saying to yourself “once more I need to get up” while crying after defeat. And you are tired of telling everybody and people who are with you that everything is fine”.
“But the worst of all is that nobody really realizes how it feels like. It’s a huge responsibility to have the back 7 of Chile. And it’s paying me that journalists and other people criticize me without knowing …”
Y LLEGA EL MOMENTO EN EL QUE TE CANSAS . Te cansas que te critiquen con razón y sin razón, te cansas de que te quieran ver derrotado , te cansas de decirte a ti mismo “una vez más me levantare” después de llorar tras una derrota, y te cansas de decirle al mundo y a las personas que están contigo, que todo va bien . Y lo peor, que nunca nadie se da cuenta de cómo eso te hace sentir … tengo el dorsal 7️⃣ de chile y es una responsabilidad enorme, por eso me da pena que periodistas y gente mala critique sin saber …
