The Chilean was having none of it following a huge blow on his country’s chances to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
Alexis Sanchez was highly upset with journalists following Chile’s 1-0 defeat to Bolivia in South America’s qualifiers for the World Cup.
The Arsenal player has had a horrible summer after his desired move to Manchester City fell apart and now Chile has suffered to defeats, which significantly lowers their chances of making it to Russia next year. The 28-year-old took it to social media to express his frustration with the situation.
“And there comes the time when you get tired,” he said on Instagram.
“You get tired when you are criticised with or without reason, you get tired when people want to see you defeated.Antonio Conte determined to find Alexis Sanchez’s brilliance Andrew Smyth – Antonio Conte is on a mission to help Alexis Sanchez rediscover his old brilliance, and promised the Inter Milan loanee more game time.
“You get tired to tell yourself ‘I will get up again’ after crying about a defeat, and you get tired telling the world and the people that are with you that everything is okay.
“And the worst thing is, no one ever realises how that makes you feel… I have Chile’s number 7 and it is a huge responsibility, that’s why it is a shame that journalists and bad people criticise without knowing.”
