Edu praises Alexis Sanchez, saying that the striker is ‘phenomenal’

Edu, retired Brazilian footballer, was delighted with Alexis Sanchez, saying that the player is a “phenomenon” and one of the top five in the Premiere League after making a move from Barca to Arsenal. Price per head software services know that many fans who follow the striker from Chile fully agree.
In all matches, Sanchez scored for the Gunners on 18 occasions since he went to the Emirates Stadium from Camp Nou, before injuries set back his time on the pitch.
But Edu thinks that the Chilean striker found the right club to rise in the sport, something that fans everywhere believe will happen – possibly sooner than expected.
“Alexis is a phenomenon,” said the former Arsenal legend.
“At Arsenal he has found what I think he was hoping for; to be an undisputed starter and main player, something he was never able to achieve at Barcelona, despite playing well and receiving praise from the press and fans.
“I think at the moment he is among the five best players in the Premier League, there is no doubt about that.”
Even though the Gunners have a spot in the top three of the Premiere League, Arsene Wenger, the team’s manager, was under plenty of pressure this season, as he admitted that his side are no longer in the competition for the title, and have a very difficult job to be able to continue playing in the UEFA Champions League after having been beaten by Monaco, but price per head software services can see that the team’s fans continue to be very optimistic.
However, Edu – who was part of the Frenchman’s ‘Invincibles’ side that had an undefeated 2003-2004 season in the league, and who is a huge favourite with football fans all over the world for his abilities on the pitch, was backing the man who used to be his manager to have better luck with the club.
“I am sure things will get better. Arsene is a great manager, but I don’t think I’m the right person to be analysing his position on the bench,” added the current director of football at Corinthians.
“He helped me a lot during the five years I was in London.
“Perhaps the club is looking for a balance between the economic and sporting sides, but I can’t really analyse things beyond that.”
