He spared NO PUNCHES: Alexis Sanchez goes after PSG at presentation
The Chilean is a new player for Olympique de Marseille, and he made it clear who their target is this season
The city of Marseille has gone mad for the arrival of Alexis Sánchez. The Chilean forward terminated his contract with Inter Milan and decided to sign as a free agent for Olympique de Marseille, who gave him a two-year contract. The attacker who came through from Cobreloa in Chile arrives in the French city to play the Champions League and be the leader in the local battle against Paris Saint Germain and their stars.
At 33 years old, Alexis Sánchez adds a new historic European club and another league to his career after having played for Arsenal, Manchester United, FC Barcelona and Inter. With the Chilean national team he played 143 games and in total he has 17 titles.
During his presentation, Alexis did not hold anything back and made it very clear to the club that is arriving: "I come to the biggest club in France, the only club that managed to win the Champions League. It is the club that has the most history, it was a challenge for me come to a club as big as Marseille and I accepted it".
Along the same lines, Alexis Sánchez added: "Playing the Champions League is nice for anyone, competing is my thing, I've always won titles and coming here is a personal challenge, winning a trophy. I went to Inter who hadn't won for 11 years and achieved a title, it's a personal challenge. A good team, a good coach, my idea is to achieve something here".
"Marseille hasn't won a tournament for 10 years, it's a challenge for me to be able to win something here. I move to a place because I want to win. I don't know much about my teammates, I hope to meet them now that I'll see them every day. I feel very loved by people, it's beautiful things that they're showing at the moment, full of pride and it is difficult to dimension it. The French League is intense, pressured, with quality players, something that brought me here, I like the style, having won 4- 1 in the debut in something very nice", sentenced the Chilean.
As expected, on social media, his words on the greatness and the history of Olympique de Marseille went like a bomb because Paris Saint Germain today has virtually no rival in France and Alexis Sánchez arrives to revive the illusion completely.
