The Chile international’s future was a relentless source of speculation throughout the summer transfer window but the 28-year-old failed to secure a transfer away from The Emirates.
Sanchez was touted as a target for Manchester City but a move to link up with Pep Guardiola failed to materialise for the attacker.
The forward has been on international duty with Chile in recent days but was unable to prevent his national team from slipping to a disappointing 1-0 loss to Bolivia in World Cup qualifying on Tuesday night.
Now, Sanchez is preparing to head back to London as he looks to focus on Arsenal’s clash with Bournemouth at The Emirates on Saturday.
However, the former Barcelona man had a message for his followers after the recent criticism that has headed his way.
Sanchez posted the picture above on Instagram and wrote the caption: “AND TOMORROW IS COMING. “You get tired of being criticised with reason and without reason, you get tired of wanting to be defeated, you get tired of saying to yourself “I’ll get up once again” after crying after a defeat, and you get tired of telling the world and people who are with you, that everything is going well.
“And the worst thing is that no one ever realises how that makes you feel … I have the number seven of Chile on my back and it is a huge responsibility, that’s why I’m sorry that journalists and bad people criticise without knowing…”
Arsenal head into Saturday’s game looking to get back to winning ways after their disastrous 4-0 loss to Liverpool before the international break.
