Alexis Sanchez revered for Chile like David Beckham was for

Alexis Sanchez carries SBOBETthe expectation of a nation in the same way David Beckham did for England, says Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal kept hold of Sanchez despite a Deadline Day £60m bid for the player, and the 29-year-old could leave the club on a free transfer when his current contract expires next summer.

Sanchez's desire to play at the World Cup for Chile next summer was expected to maintain the forward's commitment levels at Arsenal, but his national side - who have won back-to-back Copa America titles - this week missed out on qualification for Russia.

Wenger likened the pressure onSBOBET Sanchez in his home country to the hype that used to surround Beckham, who became England's villain for his red card at the 1998 World Cup before going on to lead the national team as captain.

"I would say you have in every generation a player SBOBETwho carries the pressure of expectation of a nation," Wenger said.

"In France it was [Zinedine] Zidane. In England it was Beckham. We had other players in the team but it was Beckham. Why not [Steven] Gerrard? I don't know. But it was Beckham.

"In Chile it's Sanchez. In Argentina of course it's [Lionel] Messi. It looks like that there is somebody there in a national team who has to carry the pressure and absorb it and protect a little the rest of the team.
