- Sanchez becomes the latest star to have his statue vandalised after Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered a similar fate
Alexis Sanchez has been given Zlatan Ibrahimovic treatment with the Chilean star's statue left terribly vandalised in his hometown Tocopilla.
The Chilean became the latest star to fall victim of angry locals after his giant effigy symbolizing his excellence was left deformed in what appears to be a show of displeasure towards the ageing forward.
Sanchez's statue was erected in 2017 in his hometown alongside the badges of all the clubs he has played for throughout his career.
But for a reason yet unknown, the 31-year-old's statue was defaced and left totally deformed with his football trademark number 7 scratched out.
The level of the damage seems to be serious after the statue's right foot was severely damaged by unknown men.
Sanchez, who currently plays for Inter Milan on a loan deal from Manchester United, has his statue attacked in an incident similar to the vandalism of legendary Manuel Munoz's statue.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Zlatan Ibrahimovic's statue has been finally deformed by angry Malmo football fans as fury continues to trail the Swedish star's recent purchase of a 25% stake in rival club Hammarby.
Ibra became the latest football star to venture into club ownership after buying a chunk of percentage in a Swedish topflight which was announced on Wednesday, November 27.
