Real Sociedad fullback Monreal: Alexis best I played with

Nacho Monreal says Alexis Sanchez was the best footballer he played with at Arsenal.

33-year-old Monreal joined Real Sociedad this summer after seven-and-a-half years at the Emirates.

Speaking of the experience, Monreal said: "It has been one of the most beautiful experiences of my life.

"I was there seven years, I have shared shirts with many good players. The best? I stay with Alexis, he is a different player.

After seeing him train for a minute, you realise the kind of player he is.

"I have felt privileged putting my boots on next to him, Lacazette, Aubameyang, Santi Cazorla, Petr Cech and more."
