Arsenal forward Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has insisted that teammate Alexis Sanchez is an example for all footballers to learn from.
Oxlade-Chamberlain was speaking to the media ahead of his side’s Champions League clash with Olympiakos this week, as reported by Sky Sports, and had nothing but praise for Sanchez.
The Chilean international has been a star performer since arriving from Barcelona, and there is an argument to suggest that he is the ideal modern day footballer.
Sanchez’s desire to track back and help his team defensively fits in with the team’s objective, while his individual quality on the ball makes the difference in attack.
Combined with his pace, vision and unselfishness, the former Udinese star will hope to continue to make progress which will potentially ensure that he is considered amongst the top players in world football.
The 26-year-old will be relieved after ending his goalscoring drought with a hat-trick against Leicester City on Saturday afternoon, and he will undoubtedly hope that it sparks a run of good form to help boost the Gunners in their pursuit of silverware this season.
Oxlade-Chamberlain added that he was highly critical of himself and perhaps lacks self belief, as reported by Sky Sports, but he will be hoping to learn from his teammate and develop his game in order to improve and be considered one of the best in the Premier League in his position.
