Ex-Inter Star Ivan Zamorano Heaps Praise On Udinese's Alexis Sanchez

Former Inter attacker Ivan Zamorano is full of praise for Udinese star Alexis Sanchez.
Chile international Alexis Sanchez has been one of the revelations of the 2010-11 campaign with his superb performances for Serie A side Udinese.

The tricky attacker's good performances haven't gone unnoticed elsewhere and clubs such as Juventus, Inter, Chelsea and Manchester United have all been linked with the forward.

Former Chile star Ivan Zamorano, who wore the jerseys of Real Madrid and Inter among others during his active career, is impressed with Sanchez's performances and is full of praise for the 22-year-old attacker.

"Scoring three or four goals in one Serie A match is something you can only dream about. Some of the best strikers ever have played in Italy. Games like that are just magical," said Zamorano to El Mercurial, referring to Sanchez's four goals against Palermo.

"Alexis' main weapon is his pace, but there's so much more to his game. He's still young and has already made a name for himself worldwide.

"I don't think he will stay much longer at Udinese following his most recent performances. I'm convinced that he will be better than me and Marcelo Salas. His youthfulness will allow him to become a great player."

Sanchez has climbed to 102nd spot in the Castrol Rankings following his excellent performances for Udinese this season.
