One of the first things that comes to mind when you think of Alexis is his unrelenting intensity and energy on the pitch.
But how has the Chilean reached the levels he is at today? Has it always been the case or is it something that he has specifically worked on?
“I have always been like this,” Alexis told Arsenal Player. “My career won´t last forever and I am aiming to be one of the best players in the world. I want to do my best and be professional until my career ends.
“I enjoy football a lot, I always wanted to be one of the best players in the world and I've been saying that since I was a little boy. I will slow down after I retire, but for the time being I will carry on like this.
“I just try to train well, sleep well and be professional at my job. There's not much of a secret to it.”
