Arsene Wenger has paid Alexis Sanchez the ultimate tribute by comparing him to Arsenal legend Ian Wright.
Fit-again top-scorer Sanchez is back in the Gunners’ squad for the home game against Leicester on Tuesday, giving the club a huge boost.
Now Wenger believes Sanchez can lift the whole mood as he claimed the 18-goal Chilean forward’s infectious enthusiasm reminds him of one of the Arsenal greats.
As quoted on the Daily Mirror website, the Gunners’ boss said: “He reminds me of Ian Wright. He is a bit like Ian Wright. The enthusiasm of Ian Wright. He has that.”
