Veteran forward Alexis Sanchez has had his say for Inter Milan as the Nerazzurri march towards the Serie A title this season.

Today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, note how the Chilean has more than played his part in the team’s impressive league campaign.

It wouldn’t quite be fair to have called Sanchez a “fringe player” at Inter over the first half of the Serie A season.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona forward did play his share of matches. Even if these just came as a substitute.

Sanchez failed to really make a decisive contribution, however.

The Chilean made up the numbers in attack and gave starters like Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram a rest more than anything.

An injury to Thuram has given Sanchez his chance in the last couple weeks, though.

And the 35-year-old has grabbed that chance with both hands.

Sanchez has assisted a goal in each of Inter’s last three matches, league wins against the likes of Lecce, Atalanta, and Genoa.

The Chilean also scored his first league goal of the season from the penalty spot against Genoa.

Sanchez had previously scored twice in the Champions League. But not in the league.

Thuram’s absence may have deprived Inter of one of their two main attacking talismans.

But Sanchez’s displays in the last three matches have shown that the Nerazzurri can still find real quality in attack even when the Frenchman is on the sidelines.

It may be Martinez and Thuram who have been Inter’s driving force in attack from week to week.

But at a crucial moment in the season when the Nerazzurri have needed to rely on their full squad, Sanchez has stood up to be counted.

If and when Inter confirm their status as Italian champions, Sanchez will be able to say he played his part.
