Chile coach, Pizzi says Alexis Sanchez “very happy” amid Arsenal contract stand-off

Head coach of Chile’s national team, Juan Antonio Pizzi, has said Alexis Sanchez is going through “a very special situation”, as his contract stand-off at Arsenal continues.

But Pizzi believes the player is fully focused on La Roja’s Confederation Cup semi-final clash against Portugal on Wednesday.

Sanchez has one year left on his deal at the Emirates and is yet to sign a new deal, which is worth more than £275,000-a-week.

Asked about the 28-year-old’s state of mind on Tuesday, Pizzi responded: “We think he is very happy.

“He is looking forward to playing a new final, he’s giving his very best like everyone else. He is going through a very special situation.

“Everybody would like to be in a similar situation because the best clubs in the world would like to have him, although he is already playing for a great club.

“He’s a very responsible person and he knows exactly what he has to do. We’ll see what happens but right now, he is very comfortable and committed to the national team.”
