Alexis Sanchez recently admitted that he has had a terrible start to the season and needs to improve, via Jake Johnson of Goal.com.
These words were like music to the ears of Barcelona fans, as they are in full agreement with the Chilean.
It is a great sign that he would only give himself a "five out of 10" so far, because that shows self-awareness and a desire to improve.
Cules have been pretty hard on the South American, but his recent comments are very encouraging for a team in need of more offensive power.
But as positive and respectable as his recent statements were, that does not make them less true.
He has, as he admitted, been just short of awful so far this season, and his teammates need to see better from him.
In the opinion of many Barça fans, the best option right now would be to bench their No. 9. For those fans, this would be best for him and best for the team.
Here are four reasons Alexis Sanchez should be relegated to the bench at Camp Nou.
