Alexis Sánchez, at present yielded by the Manchester United to the Inter of Milan, was during three seasons playing in the FC Barcelona and that left a flavour agridulce to the barcelonismo. The Chilean arrived like an emergent promise, pertinent of the Udinese, but did not achieve to finish to triumph in the Barcelona team. The irregularity in his game did to win critical, although it also offered brushstrokes of class.

We are speaking of one of these players that sometimes was a genius and, others, a disaster. The tocopillano so prompt could mark a golazo -especially remembered were his vaselina to Diego López in a Classical or his zurriagazo impossible without angle to the Athletic of Madrid in the Camp Nou- as it could fail clear occasions or fall when trying dribblings.

"After being leading and exert roles trascendentes in other places, arrive to the Barcelona and have a more secondary paper slope. It has happened him to a lot of players there. Few have achieved to adapt fast to this new role, perhaps Neymar or Arturo Vidal. They have showed this intelligence. It is not easy to determine why Alexis did not finish to triumph in Barcelona", said.

Even from his exit of the Arsenal, his first year in the Manchester United. Wine to the Glass America in Brazil and afterwards had this bad fortune with the injury in Alicante against Colombia in a friendly. Almost that it frustrated this loan to the Inter and when it was recovered arrived this of the pandemia", aimed.

In spite of this, Rueda trusts fully in that his compatriot will finish triumphing in Giuseppe Meazza. "Expect that it happen all this fast because it is a big professional, has a big culture of training and goes to keep a high level for any club that can give him an opportunity. Has a lot of football still for showing in the first level", sentenced, on the forward of 31 years.
