The striker was forced to leave a training session early with a muscular issue, a problem he had while on international duty during the last break.
As a result Rueda hit out at Inter over their inability to get the striker back to fitness, but the Nerazzurri didn’t hold back in criticizing the tactician.
“FC Internazionale Milano consider the recent remarks stated by Reinaldo Rueda, the Technical Commissioner of the Chile National Team, to be unacceptable, offensive, and inaccurate,” read a statement on the club’s official website.
“The Club has always had maximum collaboration and excellent relations with all the staff of the National teams.
“Specifically, in the case of Alexis Sanchez, the player has encountered a physical problem in almost all of his call-ups to his National team. In one of them he suffered a serious injury that kept him off the pitch for three months. This represented a serious sporting damage for the Club, which has always been attentive and astute to the health of its players.”
