Sampaoli wants Sanchez at Sevilla

Alexis Sanchez on Juve radar

Sevilla head coach Jorge Sampaoli has revealed that he would ‘love’ the chance to work with Alexis Sanchez once again.

“If only, yes, it would be great to have the chance one day to coach Sanchez,” Sampaoli told reporters. “He is a top, top player. One of the best forwards in the world I would say.

“I was lucky to share a time with him in the national team. We went to a World Cup together, we won the Copa America with him in the side as well, it was a very satisfying period of my career and it was great to share it with Alexis.”

Note that Sanchez has made 37 appearances during this season, scoring 21 goals.
