Alexis Sánchez explodes

New season, same situation. The 2021/2022 season has only just begun and Alexis Sánchez is on the way to becoming a headache for Inter Milan. The Chilean attacker has played 4 games so far this season with the Nerazzurri (3 in Serie A and 1 in the Champions League), but none as a starter. After accumulating 70 minutes and staying without jumping onto the pitch in the last victory of the Interista team against Sassuolo, Alexis exploded. “Realize, you can be worth a lot, but if you’re in the wrong place, you’re not going to shine.” was the enigmatic message that the 32-year-old footballer left on his personal Instagram account after the league match. The phrase, accompanied by a photograph of a luxury car, shows Alexis Sánchez’s dissatisfaction with his position in Milan.

Alexis Sánchez, Inter Milan player, posted an enigmatic message on his personal Instagram account after the Serie A match against Sassuolo.

It’s been a long time since the Chilean took a back seat at Inter. During the past course, Alexis ended up playing 38 games in all competitions, but he was only a starter 16 times. However, despite being around 1600 minutes throughout the season, the former FC Barcelona player scored 7 goals and distributed 6 assists, all in the domestic competition. The Chilean ended up being proclaimed champion of Serie A with Inter Milan, but, as far as participation is concerned, Alexis found himself with a wall that was practically impossible to overcome. The offensive duo formed by Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martínez closed wide the doors of ownership to Alexis Sánchez, who had to be content with playing the last 15-20 minutes of each game.

After missing the qualifying phase of the Copa América 2021 with Chile due to injury, Alexis Sánchez had a new and important opportunity at Inter Milan. Antonio Conte stopped being Interista coach and Romelu Lukaku headed to Chelsea. However, history repeated itself with Simone Inzaghi and Edin Dzeko. On the one hand, the Chilean did not enter the Italian coach’s calls until matchday 3 of the league championship, chaining two consecutive games without playing a minute against Sampdoria and Real Madrid. On the other hand, the new Inter striker has become Lautaro Martínez’s attacking partner. But even when the 35-year-old Bosnian striker is absent from the eleven, Inzaghi prefers Joaquín Correa as the Argentine’s companion.
