Sanchez has no regrets on Barca exit


Alexis Sanchez, 27 is fit to line-up against his former club FC Barcelona at Emirates on Tuesday for their UEFA Champions League last 16 first leg.
The Chile international has no regrets over leaving Barcelona for Arsenal but admits that it was not an easy decision to leave.

“I never regret my decisions,” said Sanchez. “It wasn’t easy to leave ­Barcelona. I fulfilled a dream when I moved there – to play in Spain and for the champions – but very few players stay in the same club all their life. To leave is normal.

“I wanted a new project, a new experience. And with so many attacking players at Barca it was a good choice to go.

“The directors told me clubs were interested. So I think it was a good choice to go to Arsenal, the best choice. It has been a positive move and I love it at Arsenal.” said Sanchez.
