We don’t normally do these kind of posts, but we mentioned earlier that Alexis Sanchez had to come off in last night’s Copa America final having taken a kicking in the game and going over on his ankle.
Well, the Arsenal man has posted pictures of his ankle on his Instagram account, and even though we’re a long way from the the start of the new season, you can help but be a bit worried.
His ankle is swollen up massively, and in a couple of the shots looks like somebody described a foot to an alien who had never seen one before and asked him to draw one.

The caption says: I put up with as much as I could … and it was worth it!!! Very happy 😀
He definitely needs to get some rest now. We prescribe:
- No running on the beach with the dogs
- No sprinting
- No jogging
- No cantering like a randy horse
- No jumping
- No hopping
- No hitting himself on the ankle with a hammer to see how long he can endure it
- No anything
Let’s hope he recovers well.
