The Copa America starts this week, and according to Record the Arsenal striker was blunt in saying that he wants to win the tournament. But admitted that the pressure of being the hosts could harm Chile’s national team.
“Sometimes it’s hard to be the star with your club and have the same responsibility with your own country. It is very difficult to be in my position compared to Cristiano or Messi,” said the striker in the interview.
Alexis asked the Chilean fans to play their role and support the national team during the tournament, and also complained about the indifference of the fans in their last friendly against El Salvador.
The striker has had an outstanding season with Arsenal, where he won the FA Cup and was one of the best players in the team, but he also said he wasn’t satisfied, and that he ended the season wanting to have achieved more.
