Joaquin Correa and Lautaro Martinez were the starting attacking players for Inter this weekend – the latter of whom scored the winner – while Edin Dzeko came off the bench to play a prominent role by netting the equaliser.
Sanchez has found himself down the pecking order at the Milanese giants as Dzeko – signed from Roma this summer to replace Romelu Lukaku in the squad – also won the penalty from which Martinez netted.
As outlined by Football Italia, the Chilean took to Instagram to post a story that showed a Ferrari car that was isolated and covered in sand alongside a message in Spanish.
Sanchez wrote alongside the caption: “Realise that you can be worth a lot, but if you are in the wrong place, you are not going to shine.”
It was not difficult to determine that the former Arsenal star was referring to himself as the flashy sports car that carried a lot of value but was not being valued properly by his employer.
That this was posted only a few minutes after the full-time whistle signalled that the player was clearly very frustrated with his peripheral role in Inzaghi’s squad.
Yet taking to social media to vent his frustrations did not appear to be the sensible approach and he now risks disciplinary action from the club, who have been undermined by the post.
Sanchez’s career has stalled since leaving Arsenal for Manchester United in January 2018 – he netted just five goals across 45 appearances for the Red Devils.
United allowed him to join Inter on a season-long loan deal in the summer of 2019 whilst subsidising part of his wage packet, before he joined the Italian club on a free transfer the following year.
He netted 11 goals across his first two seasons in Italy but appears to have fallen out of favour this time round.
Sanchez scored seven goals in 30 league appearances last season as Conte guided Inter to their first Serie A title since 2010.
