Alexis Sanchez’s humble beginnings has been well documented with stories of our Chilean superstar having to do somersaults for extra cash confirmed by the man himself.
It is the reason behind what drives him in the pitch and why he is intent on featuring in every minute of every game for us. Apart from his supreme talent, his desire strive and put in a shift has been praised but it seems like a natural way to go about playing football – it’s the only way he knows.
Pictures have emerged showing the home of Alexis in his town of Tocopilla where he is a revered figure and makes charitable contributions on a yearly basis.
A £35 million signing from Barcelona, Sanchez has been a revelation this year being our top scorer in all competitions with 18 goals.
