Chile fans have organised a march in the nation’s capital, Santiago, in an attempt to persuade Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal.
According to FourFourTwo, a Facebook event entitled “National March for Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal” has been set up and already has over over 5,000 attendees.
The description on the event, set to take place on March 1, read:
We, as Chileans, are tired to watch 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–k 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, 28, has over 100 caps for the Chile national team and played a key role as La Roja won the Copa America in 2015 and 2016.
Rumours that he could depart Arsenal have been widespread for some time as he has still to pen a new deal with the club—his contract expires in 2017-18—per John Cross in the Mirror.
