Pictures have surfaced of Arsenal superstar Alexis Sanchez as a 15-year-old, and they’re brilliant.
Sanchez has been Arsenal’s best player in a patchy season at the Emirates.
And to make his campaign even better, we’ve stumbled upon these beauties from back in 2004.
The pictures, of Sanchez donning sunglasses indoors on New Years Day 12 years ago, were taken at an iconic time in Arsenal’s history.
That season, Arsenal steamrolled the Premier League, winning the title without losing a single game.
Thierry Henry, Robert Pires, Sol Campbell and Co dominated England’s top flight in Arsene Wenger’s greatest assembled team.
We like to think that Sanchez was watching Arsenal’s Invincibles back then and thought to himself: I want to play for those guys one day.
It’s probably not the case, but we can dream.
Either way, we find these nostalgic snaps of Alexis pretty damn endearing of a man who went on to become one of the Premier League’s best imports.
