Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez makes bizarre Leo Messi / Cristiano Ronaldo comparisonPublished September 9, 2016
Arsenal superstar Alexis Sanchez, rates himself rather highly in terms of footballing ability.
The Chilean forward, is one of the most lethal and talented footballers in world football, but it appears as though the 27-year-old now believes he has reached the summit in terms of his footballing ability, after recently claiming he is at the same level as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I have reached a level where I can compete with great players,” Sanchez told Sport. “I do not feel inferior to anybody. I liken [my qualities] to Messi and Ronaldo. I have the same abilities as them.”
The bold claim from Sanchez is bound to get the football world talking, as comparing yourself to the two best players on the planet is a pretty big statement.
The Chilean forward played alongside five-time Ballon d’Or winner Leo Messi for Barcelona, whilst Cristiano Ronaldo has won the prestigious accolade on three occasions.
Sanchez’s Ballon d’Or count is currently at zero….
Whilst there is no doubting that Alexis Sanchez certainly has the talent to challenge for the title of being the world’s best player, Arsenal fans will hope their forward does the talking on the pitch, after a rather inconsistent campaign last season.
If Sanchez really wants to be consider among the upper echelons of world football, now is the time to prove it.
