QPR star not overly enamoured with Chilean international.
Everyone’s favourite footballer-cum-philosopher Joey Barton couldn’t help by chime in with his two cents worth over the transfer of Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal by labelling the player ‘inconsistent’, the Daily Star reports.
The Chilean international arrived from Spanish giants Barcelona on Thursday night for a fee believed to be in the region of £35million.
Arsenal fans wasted no time in expressing their delight at the deal, but unfortunately not everybody was pleased about it and Joey Barton, in rather contrarian fashion, took to Twitter to label him as inconsistent.
“Am I the only one not overly wetting my pants over Arsenal signing Sanchez? From what I’ve seen of him he is incredibly inconsistent,” he said.
“Yes, on his day he can light up a game. But as anyone who has watched Barca will tell you. His good games are as common as his bad.
“Whilst I think it will improve Arsenal. They still need more if they are to challenge for the title. Still think they need a bit of steel.
“He plays better for Chile where he’s the main man than Barca where he’s in Messi’s shadow. Will he be the main man at the Emirates?”
