Thousands of Chileans are set to march in a bid to force Alexis Sanchez out of Arsenal, according to reports.
The forward is the star of the Chile national team and his situation at the Emirates have not gone down well with thousands of supporters in his homeland.
There have been reports in recent weeks that he is getting frustrated with Arsenal’s failure to challenge for major titles and he reportedly lashed out as his teammates after the 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday for not doing enough in the game.
The rally which is named “National march for Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal” will take place on March 1st with over 4000 people expected to participate.
“We, as Chileans are tired of watching one of our biggest stars play on his own to make his team get through,” a description of the event said on Facebook, as quoted by Squawka.
“We don’t want him to play at Real Madrid, nor go back to Barcelona, we don’t give a f*** where he plays, we just want him to fight along with 10 other players to get the results.
“He doesn’t deserve to be alone.”
Sanchez has been our best player this season and has been involved in 36 of our goals across all competitions this season.
Recent developments in Chile is very sad for us as Gooners, as this will only encourage the Chilean to leave the club. He will have just one year left in his contract by the next transfer window and will be in a strong position to push for exit.
