In an interview with SFR Sport the 28-year-old revealed what it takes to keep himself in shape throughout the year.
“I am very professional in what I do," Sanchez said. “I respect the need for rest, I do not go out much, I do not eat out.
“I stay at home with my two dogs, they help me to relax. Talking to my dogs de-stresses me, we also go out for walks. All this helps me a lot to play in every match.“
Alexis also revealed he hopes to win the Confederations Cup with Chile this month.
"Normally our team never qualifies for this competition. We will play after winning the last two Copa America.
“The players are very motivated, this title could bring prestige to Chile. We are motivated, we want to win this competition to bring a new title to Chile."
