Sanchez praises Kolasinac impact

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has praised new signing Sead Kolasinac after the impact he has had since joining the club on a free transfer in the summer.

Sanchez believes the Bosnian international has had a huge impact on the Gunners this season since his arrival from Schalke, and say he is just as intimidating of an opponent in training.

The Chilean is widely known as one of the deadliest forwards on the planet, and has attracted a huge amount of interest from clubs all over Europe with his contract situation at Arsenal still very unclear. However, Sanchez admits even he struggles to play against Kolasinac, who he describes as a tough opponent to have to face.

“It’s tough [against him in training] because he’s strong and he’s hard to get around!” Alexis told Arsenal’s official website.

“He’s a very experienced player and he’s really strong.

“When it matters [in games], he finds me and makes good passes so I can score. He is an intelligent player who can create good goalscoring opportunities.

“He’s already demonstrated his quality. He’s scored goals, provided assists and shown what he can do both in European and league games.”
