Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has confirmed reports of a dressing room bust-up with Chile team-mate Marcelo Diaz, but says that everything is now "all good" as the hosts prepare for the upcoming Copa America tournament.

It was reported in Chile that the pair had a heated argument after Chile's 1-0 friendly win over El Salvador on Friday, after Sanchez clashed with designated set-piece taker Diaz and demanded to take a free-kick in the 43rd minute.

El Mercurio reported that Hamburg midfielder Diaz called Sanchez greedy after the game, and Chile captain Gary Medel had to intervene.

Sanchez, however, has since played down the extent of the row.

"We’re all good," said Sanchez. "It was an exchange of opinions, like [the media] loves, it’s normal. Everything’s sorted, there’s no fight and we are all calm, they’re things that happen in a match."

 

Sanchez scored 25 goals for Arsenal last term, in his terrific debut season for the Gunners which ended in FA Cup triumph at Wembley.

The Copa America starts on 11 June.
