The Chilean player won four domestic trophies with the Catalan team under Guardiola he left the Barcelona club in 2014 the Chilean Superstar joins the Gunners in 2014.
Now the 27 year old attacker established himself as a instrumental player for the Gunners and in their next match the Manchester City wil play a match against the Gunners and the Guardiola will met his former team player Sanchez.
This season so far the superstar has scored 12 premier league goals so far.
Guardiola added: think Alexis played well at Udinese, with Chile, he played really good in Barcelona,”
Normally when you play with Messi all the players are beside him and people think he [Alexis] was not at his level because Messi is the highlight. But he played good and helped us a lot.
“And I think the position he’s in now as a striker is perfect for him, suited perfectly to him. In Barcelona maybe I didn’t help him too much because he was playing wide, I like the wingers wide.
“He can do that but he’s more between the lines than to cross to the goal. Sometimes he played as striker, especially one game I remember against Chelsea in the Champions League semi-final.
