Chilean fans' campaign to coax Alexis Sanchez into leaving Arsenal

Chilean fans' campaign to coax Alexis Sanchez into leaving Arsenal

The protest, which is organized by the appropriately-named "Campaign to Get Alexis Sanchez to Leave Arsenal" Facebook group, is scheduled for March 1st, and aims to have the multi-talented forward leave for a club where he doesn't have to put the team on his back every game.

In the wake of the humiliating 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich, Chilean fans have used Facebook to promote the protest which will be held in Santiago on 1 March.

Supporters of the worldwide star, who are fed up at seeing him carry an Arsenal side 10 points off the pace in the Premier League and 5-1 down after the first leg of their Champions League last-16 match, are organising a protest march in order to help force his departure.

Sanchez's future at the Emirates Stadium remains uncertain, with his contract due to expire at the end of next season and talks over an extension reaching an impasse.

The push for him to leave has seemingly been sparked by the 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League this week, with the former Udinese and Barcelona forward left crouching on the pitch as he could only watch on with his team capitulating in the second half.

"We Chileans are exhausted of seeing one of our stars working by himself to make his team get through", the details of the planned march read.

Regardless of where Alexis ends up this summer, whether it's Milan, Paris, back in Spain, or still in London, at least we have this protest to immortalize the sinking ship of Arsenal's Arsene Wenger era. The event's details reveal that for the people of Chile anywhere other than Real or Barcelona (or Arsenal, obviously) will do. It's unclear whether or not he'll feature against non-league Sutton United in the FA Cup on Monday night.

The Chile worldwide is Arsenal's top scorer this season, having notched 20 times in 33 appearances across all competitions.
