Chile football fans have called for Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal and thousands have signed up to a protest march in order to get him away from the Emirates.
Supporters of the Chilean star claim to be tired of watching him carry the Arsenal side and have created a Facebook event for the protest, which will take place on March 1.
The event, which has seen almost 7,000 fans sign up to march through the Chilean capital of Santiago, comes in wake of the Gunners' 5-1 drubbing at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Now the forward's compatriots have called for their star man to leave Arsenal as they fear he is getting run into the ground in Arsene Wenger's side.
'Chileans are tired of watching one of our stars work alone so that their team can move forward,' the description of the event said.
'We do not want him to play in Madrid, not to return to Barcelona, the truth is that we do not give a damn what team to play, we just want to see him fight along with ten others to get results. No more alone.'
Sanchez has tallied 20 goals in all competitions for the London club this season, six more than his nearest rival Theo Walcott.
Calls come after Sanchez levelled at 1-1 against Bayern Munich but Arsenal eventually lost 5-1
The 28-year-old made the move to the Emirates Stadium after winning six club honours at European giants Barcelona.
He has been a shining light for Wenger this season, but after losing three of their last for matches, not least the thrashing at the Allianz Arena, the Gunners' season appears to be ripping apart at the seams once again.
But Wenger will need to keep hold of his prized asset should he mount a serious challenge for silverware next season.
