Alexis Sanchez warns Tottenham
Sanchez has directed a dig at Tottenham before their massive showdown in the Champions League, according to Football London.
"I have great affection for Arsenal from my time there. Beating Spurs every time was a great joy; it was very special and they are days I will always cherish."
The 33-year-old praised his former coach and is excited to play against him.
"He was a very demanding coach. If you don’t give 100% on pitch, then you are dropped from the next game, but it will be great to play against him tomorrow."
Tottenham could likely fail to advance to the last 16 if they lose in Marseille - and if Sporting CP and Eintracht Frankfurt draw in the other Group D game. Therefore, Conte's men need at least a draw to advance, according to the Evening Standard.
Alexis Sanchez makes Marseille debut
Sports Brief earlier reported on Alexis Sanchez making his debut for the French giants Marseille against Brest in August.
He was introduced at the start of the second half but did not significantly influence the game, as Marseille failed to hold onto the lead.
Sanchez signed a one-year deal with Marseille, coached by Igor Tudor, who was Conte's teammate at Juventus.
