Alexis Sanchez says he’s been particularly impressed by Sead Kolasinac’s strength and intelligence on the ball following the Bosnian’s eye-catching start to life in the Premier League.
The left-back has proved a real attacking threat for the Gunners since his summer move from Schalke, helping himself to three goals and three assists, including one of each in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Swansea.
While Alexis spends matchdays on the same side as the 24-year-old, he admits that in training, the new boy makes life very difficult for him.
“It’s tough [against him in training] because he’s strong and he’s hard to get around!” Alexis told Arsenal Player.
“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.”
