Harsh words from Sanchez

That Alexis Sanchez had not left Inter Milan with a smile on his face was no secret, as evidenced by the long negotiations to release the Chilean striker. In the last few hours, right from his home country, comes a no small snub to the Nerazzurri and their coach Simone Inzaghi, right from the Niño Maravilla.

“I was serene but I felt I was not given the chance to prove my worth,” Sanchez told ‘Tnt Sports Chile.’ “It is right to be criticized if you play badly but I felt I was being judged without having the chance to respond on the field. It was unfair.”

Then the not even too veiled criticism of the coach from Piacenza: “I was a lion in a cage,” said the striker who is proving to be a key man for Olympique Marseille this season. “Once, before a derby, I told him that we would lose if he did not make me play as a starter against Milan. And it happened just like that. Since then I have said nothing more to him, mouth shut and ears big.”
