Thousands of Chilean football fans have signed up to march in protest against Alexis Sanchez remaining at Arsenal.
A Facebook event named ‘National March for Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal’ has been organised with nearly 7,000 supporters planning to campaign along the streets of Santiago – the capital of Sanchez’s home country – on March 1.
“Chileans are tired of watching one of our stars work alone so that their team can move forward,” the description of the event says.
“We do not want him to play in Madrid, not to return to Barcelona, the truth is that we do not give a damn what team to play, we just want to see him fight along with ten others to get results. No more alone.”
Sanchez is in the final 18 months of his contract at the Emirates, and there are reports that he was involved in a dressing-room row after the defeat in Germany.
The former Barcelona man has netted 20 times in all competitions this season and leads the way in the Premier League goal-scoring charts with 17 strikes.
