Ahead of last Sunday’s Premier League showdown at the Emirates stadium, Alexis Sanchez was reunited with his countryman Claudio Bravo and their conversation contained an interesting question.
Pep Guardiola’s side were ordered to wear a shirt bearing the name of Ilkay Gundogan after the former Dortmund midfielder’s knee ligament injury against Watford.
That act of support from the Manchester City team caught the attention of much of the football world who thought it was an overly emotional gesture for a player who had merely suffered an injury.
However, it turns out that wasn’t even what caught Alexis Sanchez’s attention. The Arsenal star appeared to not even know who Gundogoan was.
Sanchez asked Bravo: “Who is no. 8? Is he some player from the youth team?” before his Chile teammate provided an explanation.
