Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has taken to Instagram to post an emotional message following his double success at the Copa America.

Chile secured their second Copa America success in their history as they beat Argentina in a penalty shootout on Sunday.

Sanchez had once again been the key men for the Chileans, as he notched three goals throughout the tournament.

His displays did not go unnoticed as he was named player of the tournament, making it a double success for him this summer with his national side.

And reacting on Instagram in a picture posing with both trophies, he admitted he was lost for words.

 

No tengo Palabras. Solo agradecer a mis compañeros y toda la gente que nos apoyó ⚽️ ... Ahora chilenos, a disfrutar .

He wrote: 'I am speechless. I just thank my team-mates and all the people who supported us ... Now Chileans enjoy.'

 

Arsenal will now be hoping that Sanchez can continue the fine form he has shown at the Copa America for them next season.

He struggled for his best form last season as the Gunners finished second in the table, with many believing that last summer’s Copa America stopped him hitting the levels he showed during his first year at the Emirates.

They will be praying that is not the case again this year as they look to bounce back from what has been perceived as a disappointing campaign last year.
