Anyone who follows Alexis Sanchez on social media will be well aware that the Arsenal playmaker is obsessed with his two golden retrievers Atom and Humber – Gunners fans even have a banner of the doggie duo at the Emirates!
The other love in the 28-year-old’s life is his Chilean girlfriend Mayte Rodriguez.
Sanchez’s two loves collided this week as Mayte took to Instagram to share some photos of herself posing with one of the player’s famous pooches.
Mayte also shared a picture of herself and Sanchez looking happy on a beach with the caption “esa sonrisa”, which translates to “that smile”.
The actress and model is a dog lover too and has a canine companion of her own.
Sanchez’s recent form has been the dog’s b****cks. The former Barcelona man has scored in each of Arsenal’s last two matches, helping them beat Tottenham and then Burnley.
On Tuesday night he will face Huddersfield Town for the first time in his career.
A win for the Gunners would see them climb to third in the Premier League table.
