Arsenal and Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez has unveiled a statue of himself in his home city, Sanchez’s statue sits close to the crest of each club side he has represented, including Arsenal and Barcelona.
Alexis Sanchez had a baffling night on Thursday as Chile lost to Argentina in a World Cup qualifier, yet he had much more to give cheer on Saturday.
The Arsenal forward went by his home city of Tocopilla to unveil a statue, made by Marco Vergara, that has been raised in his respect.
In any case, he was all smile as he found an opportunity to gift statue maker Marco Vergara the Chile shirt he wore for his nation’s thrashing against Argentina before taking a private fly to the capital Santiago so he could rejoin his colleagues to get ready for their next match.
The badges of his clubs – including Colo, Udinese, Barcelona and Arsenal – are nearby him, as are gigantic replicas of the Copa America trophy, which Chile won in 2015 and 2016, coincidentally against Argentina on both events.
The Chile international has scored 36 goals in 106 appearances for his nation but threw a tantrum after Chile lost 1-0 to Argentina in an essential World Cup qualifying game on Thursday.
