Lou Macari not entirely convinced by the performances of the Chilean.
Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has been a revelation for the Gunners since he joined in a big money deal from La Liga giants Barcelona in the summer, but there is one man who is yet to be convinced by the Chilean – former Manchester United star Lou Macari.
Sanchez was once again the best player on the pitch last weekend as Arsene Wenger’s side beat Stoke City 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium, but Macari is yet to be impressed by Sanchez, citing the player’s performance against United as evidence, writing in his Stoke Sentinel column:
“I still worry that we are maybe building this guy up too much though. I’ve got to say he was next to useless when I saw him against Manchester United earlier this season.”
“For me, a truly top player can turn it on week-in and week-out, home or away, and against the big boys.”
“The jury is still out for me where Sanchez is concerned.”
