Hours after Kyle Walker joined Manchester City from Spurs another MCFC target (if you believe the press), Arsenal’s very own Alexis Sanchez posted a pertinent comment via his social media sites.
While chillin’ in Chile Alexis said:
Camino a Tocopilla, vi un perro correr muy rápido , pero solo tenía 3 patas, quede sorprendido…La vida te da golpes, pero como ese perro, hay que levantarse, y nunca darse por vencido, intentarlo una y otra vez, hasta conseguir tus sueños. Nadie dice que la vida será fácil.., todo tiene un sacrificio .. este perro es un ejemplo de vida … 🐕👏❤️😭
His comment, loosely translated reads…
‘I walk to Tocopilla, I saw a dog run very fast, but I only had 3 legs, I was surprised…life gives you blows, but like that dog, you have to get up, and never give up, try again and again, until you get your dreams. No one says that life will be easy…everything has a sacrifice – this dog is an example of life.’
Has this the tone of a subliminal message?
What do the ‘so-called’ experts have to say on whether Alexis will remain in London.
The Arsenal boss told reporters yesterday that he’s had encouraging talks with Sanchez via text.
‘Of course. There is not a lot to resolve at the moment with the player,’ Wenger said when asked if he’s confident Sanchez will stay at the club.
‘I have spoken through text and it was very positive. My thoughts are always positive.’
Arsene Wenger has given the 28-year-old Chile international an extended holiday until the end of this month, perhaps, giving him more time to contemplate his future.
Would you like Sanchez playing alongside Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero?
I suspect we’ll have a definitive answer within the next couple of weeks.
