This is the second season for Alexis Sánchez in Arsenal. Since he left Barça during the summer of 2014, the Chilean winger has become one of the idols of the team led by Arsène Wenger. His impact in England has been very positive and only an injury, this season, has stopped the great form he was displaying. On Tuesday he will face the team in which he played during three seasons, and one of the most interesting clashes of the Champion's League last 16 round. Alexis talked about his exit of the Blaugrana club and the difficulty to face a resplendent Barça. Here are the most interesting declarations of his interview yo the Sunday Mirror.

Leaving Barça

"I never regret my decisions. It wasn't easy to leave Barcelona."

"I fulfilled a dream when I moved there but very few players stay in the same club all their life. To leave is normal."

"I wanted a new project, a new experience. And with so many attacking players at Barça it was a good choice to go. It has been a positive move and I love it at Arsenal."

The draw

"We know it won't be easy, Messi is the best footballer in the world, no doubt. It's very difficult to stop him but we will work on it. And remember, Barça is not only Leo!"
