Alexis Sanchez is as an honest footballer as you might find in the current game of football. Former Barcelona man will welcome his former teammates this week as Arsenal take on Barcelona in Champions League Round of 16 Knock out tie.
Ahead of the game, Alexis discussed his playing days at Camp Nou and if he has any regrets of quitting La Liga and join Arsenal. Speaking with Mirror, Alexis confirmed that there is no regret in his decision to join Arsenal after leaving Barcelona.
Alexis thinks that he knew the time was right tp quit Camp Nou, and he could not have found a better club than Arenal to play his football at.
Speaking with Mirror, Alexis said: “I never regret my decisions,” Sanchez told the Sunday Mirror. “It wasn’t easy to leave Barcelona.
“I fulfilled a dream when I moved there – to play in Spain and for the champions – but very few players stay in the same club all their life. To leave is normal.
“I wanted a new project, a new experience. And with so many attacking players at Barca it was a good choice to go.
“I think it was a good choice to go to Arsenal, the best choice. It has been a positive move and I love it at Arsenal.”
Sanchez, who moved to Barcelona from Udinese in 2011, does not know if he will celebrate or not should he find the back of the net against his former team.
“I’m a professional so any match against Barcelona in the Champions League is special to me,”
Alexis will be the key for Arsenal as Barcelona would be gunning to take down Arsene Wenger’s men at Emirates. Arsenal have managed to avoid defeat against Barcelona in both the times they have played at Emirates.
