Alexis Sanchez’s days at Arsenal look to be numbered and now thousands of Chileans have organised a march to convince the star to leave the Emirates. A Facebook event has been set-up titled ‘National March for Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal’ which already has 4,000 fans signed up to take part. The page was created after the 5-1 mauling Bayern Munich inflicted on the Gunners in the Champions League where the 28-year-old once again scored for the North Londoners. Supporters from around the country will join together and protest on March 1 in Santiago as they are sick of Sanchez being a lonely figure at Arsenal.

A description of the event said: “We, as Chileans are tired of watching one of our biggest stars play on his own to make his team get through. “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 is in the final 18 months of his contract at the Emirates, and there are reports that he was involved in a dressing-room row after the defeat in Germany. The former Barcelona man has netted 20 times in all competitions this season and leads the way in the Premier League goal-scoring charts with 17 strikes.
