High flying Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez, who joined Arsenal last summer from Barcelona, has gone public with his desire to remain in the country that invented football!
The 26-year-old star said this recently, after a great first season in the Premier League since joining the Gunners for £35m from Barca.
“I can adapt well to anything as long as I play football.” Alexis said per the Daily Star.
“Football is my passion and I am happy as long as I chase a ball.”
“I’m well adapted to the country and the league. I must keep on learning, though.”
“I want to expand my knowledge of English football in general and Arsenal and my teammates in particular, but overall I love this league.”
The 26-year-old continued: “At the end of the day, football was invented in this country, right?”
“I live where football was invented. That makes me really happy.”
This is sure to be something that makes every Arsenal fan happy and proud, as Alexis has so far proved to be a key signing for the Gunners this season.
With 19 goals and 8 assists to his name in all competition for Arsenal already, and with the possibility of finishing strongly in the Premier League and retaining the FA Cup, Arsenal will only go from strength-to-strength with Alexis in their ranks for years to come.
