Alexis Sanchez’s injury might have prevented him from joining his teammates on the field during Friday night’s encounter against Leicester City, but at least he had some nice company to enjoy the 4-3 thriller with.
The Chilean, whose abdominal injury has ruled him out of football action, was spotted watching the game from the stands with new girlfriend Mayte Rodriguez sitting beside him.
Fans were quick to interpret his reactions to several moments during the game. Smiles were purported to be approvals for his teammates’ performances, while grim expressions were deemed as a show of discontent.
Such hysteria amongst fans is understandable as Sanchez’s future, marred by no recent improvements in his contract extension situation, still remains uncertain.
The striker’s girlfriend, on the other hand, had put all these thoughts behind while she was enjoying the game. Her pictures on social media included a selfie with the caption: “Y se ganó!” (And we won!)
