Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Why Alexis is such a "really good guy"


Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says a number of Arsenal players are learning a lot from the positive attitude of summer signing Alexis Sanchez.

The former Barcelona man wasted no time to settle down at Arsenal and his hard work and top-class goals saw him become an immediate fan favourite at the Emirates.

And the 21-year-old says the Chilean is as good as a person as he is a player.

"[He's had a] massive impact," the Englishman told Sport Magazine.

"Obviously his goals speak for themselves. But his work rate on and off the pitch – we've learned a lot from that as a group.

"It has a knock-on effect, and it brings the best out of you.

"He's a really good guy, if he could speak fluent English or if I could speak fluent Spanish, I'm sure we'd get on like an absolute house on fire. But we do alright as it is.

"There is a language barrier. But he's such a good guy and so expressive, and he doesn't mind giving it a go, so you almost get his character.

"He's similar to Santi Cazorla in that way. When Santi first came he was really happy, smiley. He wanted to get involved and he wasn't shy to try and speak English, and you really do appreciate that."
