Speaking to Italian broadcaster RAI Radio, Marchisio gave his thoughts on the Chilean’s departure from the Nerazzurri, and suggested that it is important for players whose discontent causes problems in the team not to be at a club for too long.
Sanchez had many positive moments at Inter, but in his final season at the club in particular, the 33-year-old seemed to be frustrated with a lack of a prominent role and regular playing time, even going as far as to publicly note his unhappiness.
It was not surprising, then, that the Chilean left Inter this summer, with Marseille the club he settled on where he feels that he can continue at the Champions League level whilst playing more than he did with the Nerazzurri.
Marchisio gave his view on the situation, stating that “I think it’s to Inter’s credit how they decided to manage the players’ situations. Alexis Sanchez decided to leave because he wanted to play, as he should.”
“However,” he went on, “It’s better to have players who feel at one with the squad and give their best when called upon, and not players who can create problems for an already strong team that is trying to reach its goals all together.”
