Arsenal fans are certainly used to our players being a little bit overconfident, as our loyalty to Nicholas Bendtner over the years proves!
Also we had Mesut Ozil a couple of years ago saying that he was aiming to win the Balon D’Or one day, but at least he followed that up by breaking records all the following season, and now we have our other superstar, Alexis Sanchez, stating that he is up there with the best two players in the world.
This is what he was quoted as saying: “I have reached a level where I can compete with great players.
“I do not feel inferior to anybody.
“I liken [my qualities] to Messi and Ronaldo. I have the same abilities as them.”
Well he has won the Spanish Cup and La Liga with Barcelona, and an FA Cup with Arsenal, and perhaps he his highly aware that he is now the Chile captain, with whom he has beaten Messi’s Argentina team in two successive Copa America Finals, which giveshim a nice edge.
But if he really believes he is that good, then he needs to take Arsenal’s attack by the scruff of the neck and lead them to win every game this season. Bring us back the treble Alexis, and then I’ll agree you are good as those two upstarts okay?
