Alexis Sanchez is officially a bust with FC Barcelona.
I know I'm probably writing this out of pure frustration with my team, but this kid has been nothing short of a waste of money.
Sanchez cannot handle the pressure of playing for el blaugrana, and it's best that he is loaned out this summer.
Sanchez replaced Cesc Fabregas in the second half of the Milan game, and he contributed by doing nothing.
He clearly followed the lead of his teammates.
Sanchez lost the ball on a few occasions, and was not the spark Barcelona were desperately looking for. I blame Jordi Roura as well for deciding to go with Sanchez instead of Cristian Tello, who has the speed to create plays and cause problems to the opposing defense.
Alexis is bad at controlling the ball, his moves have become too predictable, he has no confidence and has become a joke among football fans—even Barça fans, myself included.
Some of you might be saying that I'm being too tough on Alexis and that he deserves another chance.
Another chance?! Seriously?!
How many chances are we supposed to give this kid? It feels like every time Alexis struggles, some Barça fans say, "He'll do better next time" or "I'm sure the old Alexis Sanchez will show up soon."
I'm still waiting, folks.
I'm not saying he can't play football. I'm saying that Alexis Sanchez is not good enough to play at FC Barcelona.
Sanchez does have talent, but he is also weak, he lacks confidence and has been a waste of Barça's money. He needs to go either back to Italy, or go to the Bundesliga to gain confidence in his game.
And yes, I do believe Neymar would have given Barcelona a better performance not only in this game, but throughout the season.
Get rid of Alexis Sanchez this summer, Sandro Rosell. Send him to Juventus or any other team looking for his services.
Spend quite a bit of the summer transfer budget and get Neymar for next season, Sandro. You already wasted over €25 million on Alexis in 2011, why not spend double that for Neymar?
At least I know Neymar has confidence.
Truly disappointing, Alexis.
Alexis Sanchez = BUST
