Adriano: Alexis’ hard work paying off

Barcelona defender Adriano has praised Alexis Sanchez after the Chile international two goals against Real Valladolid.

The former Udinese man struck twice in a 4-1 win over the Pucela on Saturday evening, and the full-back has claimed that the forward’s hard work has been rewarded.

“The goals have come to him because of his hard work and patience,” he told the club’s official website.

“He’s on excellent form.

“I’m very happy that I’ve been able to stay healthy.

“I’m working hard, I get the rest I need and I’m eating well, that’s all important in order to not pick up injuries.”
