Chile coach Reinaldo Rueda is full of praise for Inter Milan pair Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal.

Vidal joined Alexis at Inter earlier this month after leaving Barcelona.

Rueda stated: “What he does on the field is admirable and respectable. Arturo has shown character, nobility and the dedication he always has when with the national team. That is why he has won everything he has won.

“He demonstrates it in the national team. Every time we want him to carry out a certain task, it is because he does it with unlimited intelligence and dedication. He is very positive."

And on Alexis, he added: “The Roja shirt is sewn onto his skin. He is a great player. I think Alexis is an exceptional case for everything he has lived through, he had two traumatic years and we can only evaluate the best version of Alexis after 10, 15 or 20 games.

“After his return he went back to his team, got hurt and stopped again. I have seen that he has come on for 10 or 12 minutes and we cannot accurately assess whether he is the best version of himself.

“We have seen a better version of Alexis before, when he was at other clubs, at other times. He was unable to develop what he did at Arsenal and Barcelona at Manchester United.

“Now at Inter he has not been able to play 20 games in a row and therefore it is not possible to make an evaluation and get the most out of Alexis."
