Sanchez listens to music, plays piano to relax off field
London, Dec 13 (IANS) English Premier League heavyweight Arsenal’s star forward Alexis Sanchez listens to music and even plays a bit of piano to relax off the field, the Chilean said.
“I have many ways of relaxing, such as listening to music, walking the dogs in the park and drinking mate (a traditional South American caffeine drink),” Sanchez told Arsenal Player.
“I listen to different types of music, such as reggaeton, and when it comes to bands I listen to Aventura, Bryan Adams or Pavarotti to mention a few. Depending on the day I listen to one style of music or another and I am learning a lot of English thanks to my favourite song lyrics.
“I am not a piano expert at all but I can play it a bit too,” he added. “I learnt playing a handful of songs. Playing the keyboard relaxes me too. I can play Bryan Adams or the Titanic movie soundtrack.
“Our minds are always focused on football. Sometimes you must put football aside for a while and put your attention on some other things. I am not a keyboard expert but I find it helps me to de-stress.”
