Sanchez: Premier tougher than La Liga

Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez considers the Premier League to a tougher competition than La Liga and Serie A.

Despite the Chilean international believing it is more difficult in England, he told the Daily Star that it is more enjoyable.

After spells in Serie A and La Liga with Udinese and Barcelona, the 25-year-old feels he is in a good position to pass judgement on the respective Leagues.

“Compared to other Leagues I’ve played in this is the hardest but I really like it a lot,” he commented.

“Before signing people told me how great it was at Arsenal and how many quality players they had.

“Now I’m here I look at my teammates in training and realise that.”

Since joining the Gunners from Barcelona in the summer Sanchez has operated on either flank and through the middle, yet it is out on the left where he feels ‘slightly more comfortable’.

“I can run and cut inside on my left foot, although any position is good for me as long as I’m in the team and not sitting on the bench. If I get taken off it’s like taking the ball from me.

“I want to win everything and looking at the coaches and players we have, with their winning and attitude and ambition, we can win absolutely anything.”
