Ex-Juventus Midfielder Mauricio Isla: “Alexis Sanchez Is Extraordinary, Hope He Can Play More For Inter”

Alexis Sanchez is an extraordinary player who can change games with just one pass, at least according to his Chile teammate Mauricio Isla.

The Inter forward has enjoyed an upturn in form lately, having made an impact both as a starter and as a substitute to give Antonio Conte an extra attacking weapon in their Serie A title bid.

Isla, who played under Conte at Juventus and is now at Flamengo in Brazil, admitted on Thursday that he was not surprised to see Sanchez struggling to break into the Nerazzurri’s side.

“I am very happy for Sanchez because I see him as being very happy,” the 32-year-old midfielder said in an interview with Chilean news outlet TNT Sports.

“Unfortunately he is not able to find much space from the first minute, but he often manages to affect games when he comes off the bench.

“We are talking about an extraordinary player, who with a single pass may be able to change the game.

“I know Conte very well, when he creates a starting XI he rarely changes it.

“Besides Sanchez, he has very important players like Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez, who are scoring several goals.

“Sanchez is happy when he plays, so I hope he can find more space or go to a team where he can play regularly.”

Sanchez, who joined Inter permanently last summer after a fruitful season long-loan spell from Manchester United, has made 28 appearances across all competitions under Conte this season.

The former Barcelona and Arsenal player has scored five goals and provided seven assists so far, most recently delivering the cross for Lautaro Martinez’s late winner at Torino last Sunday.
