Alexis Sanchez has let rip at journalists in the wake of Chile’s 1-0 defeat to Bolivia in South America’s World Cup qualifiers.
Alexis saw his team slip into sixth place in the CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifiers as a solitary penalty from Juan Arce deprived Chile any of any points.
And now “tired” after what has been an emotional few months for club and country, the 28-year-old took to Instagram to vent his frustration at what he feels has been harsh criticism from the press.
“And there comes the time when you get tired,” he said.
“You get tired when you are criticised with or without reason, you get tired when people want to see you defeated.
“You get tired to tell yourself ‘I will get up again’ after crying about a defeat, and you get tired telling the world and the people that are with you that everything is okay.
“And the worst thing is, no one ever realizes how that makes you feel… I have Chile’s number 7 and it is a huge responsibility, that’s why it is a shame that journalists and bad people criticize without knowing.”
