Anti-Arsenal Alexis Sanchez March In Chile: Just FIVE People Turn Up For Protest

A protest march in Chile calling for Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal had just five attendees in Santiago last night.
Over 14,000 people signed up to the march on Facebook but there were only a handful of people willing to take to the streets on Wednesday evening.

The page was set-up in the aftermath of Arsenal’s 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League last month and called on Sanchez to leave the Gunners for a club that’s likelier to win trophies.
"We, as Chileans, are tired of watching one of our biggest stars play on his own," the page’s bio read.

"We don’t want him to play at Real Madrid, nor go back to Barcelona, we don’t give a f*ck where he plays, we just want him to fight along with other 10 players to get the results.

"He doesn’t deserve to be alone
However, the organisers took to Facebook before last night’s rally to clarify that the page was in fact a joke and uploaded a video onto Instagram that showed just five people turned out in the end.

Sanchez has less than 18 months to run on his existing deal at the Emirates and appears no closer to extending his stay at the Gunners.

Arsene Wenger’s future has thrown Sanchez’s time at the club into further doubt and the Chilean forward is unlikely to commit himself until the Frenchman’s own situation is resolved.
