Alexis - Playing the piano relaxes me

Alexis has revealed that he plays the piano in his spare time to “disconnect from football” and relax.

The Chile international is known for his high-energy approach on the pitch, and has previously admitted that at times he cannot sleep after a defeat.

However, he says that playing music and spending time with his family allows him to take a take a breather from the game he calls “my passion”.

“I'm not an expert pianist but it does help me relax, because the whole day revolves around football. I go home, then football,” Alexis told Arsenal Player.

“It allows me to disconnect from football and that's really good for me.

“When I go home I don't want to watch any more football, I just want to play with my dogs and spend some time with my family, because that helps me recharge for the next day.

“It means I can go out with all the impulse and strength I want to bring."
