#7 He Gives Back To His Hometown


Sanchez is understandably a hero to the people of Tocopilla, but not just because they are proud of what he has achieved in the game. He also gives back.

The Premier League schedule means that he has been unable to do so in recent years, but when he was playing in Spain and Italy, he returned every Christmas to distribute presents to the city’s inhabitants from an open-top float.

Sanchez has also paid for the construction of football pitches in Tocopilla, providing future generations with a place to hone their talent and perhaps, eventually, follow in his footsteps.
