Alexis Sánchez

I never really liked his style of play, but looking back he really was a top player and we wasted his prime years. Happy for him that he could take at least a title back with Internazionale.

Guy was a beast under Wenger but I think would of been even more successful under someone like Klopp. His pressing and energy levels were insane.

Was a top player and glad we had him but has himself to blame.

Some people work smart whereas for years he was working stupid, he ran around like a headless chicken game after game burning himself out, playing at that intensity as your default setting was likely to bite him at some stage. Really did seem like he was running off of plutonium but before he hit 30 he was physically finished and that’s without sustaining serious injury.

I think it became clear guys like Alexis and Ozil were offered licence under Wenger they wouldn’t get elsewhere

There was a span of 3-4 years Chile was reaching tournament finals and doing well in WC, where Sanchez hardly had 2-3 weeks of proper rest.
Even when he did have a break, I am sure he was being irresponsible in name of fitness regime.
