According to Chile national team manager Reinaldo Rueda, his player Alexis Sanchez might be out for the rest of the year.

During the 0-0 draw between Chile and Colombia during the international break, Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez was injured.

The Internazionale Milan attacker had to be taken out injured during the weekend match, and manager Reinaldo Rueda fears he might need surgery to correct the problem.

“He could end up under the knife,” he said at a press conference according to Football Italia.

“Inter, his club, will decide.”

He explained: “We could lose him for two or three months.”

“It’s a shame because he had started playing again with Inter and scored two goals, while also playing in the Champions League.”

“He was happy and super motivated,” Rueda added.

“Now we have to wait for these decisive hours.”
