Arsenal midfielder Jeff Reine-Adelaide: The truth about Alexis and our locker room...

Arsenal midfielder Jeff Reine-Adelaide insists Alexis Sanchez is a great role model for young players.

Alexis has been criticised for his body language at times this season.

But Reine-Adelaide told the Daily Star: “He's very good and working hard.

“He's a great character and we expect that. All the players like him. As a player we can all watch him and get better."

The 19-year-old says midfield enforcer Francis Coquelin and England international Danny Welbeck also act as mentors.

He added: “Coquelin, because he's a French player, is always talking to me.

“Welbeck as well talks to me a lot.

“They're all nice to me because obviously I'm one of the youngest."
