Arsenal Fan Pays Tribute to Alexis Sanchez in University Thesis Acknowledgements

Arsenal Fan Pays Tribute to Alexis Sanchez in University Thesis Acknowledgements

Who knew Alexis Sanchez could inspire a student to finish his university thesis in applying Polynomial Chaos Theory to numerical problems in the aerospace field?

It turns out he could for this particular fan, who listed the Arsenal attacker last in his list of acknowledgements in the paper.

The brilliant bit of writing was posted to Reddit by user anonymousTestPoster and details his tribute to the Chilean for his scintillating performances over the last year.

Sanchez hit 24 goals in all competitions for the Gunners last season and has followed that up with seven goals in 14 matches so far this campaign.

After thanking his family, classmates and a faculty doctor, the student turns his attention to Sanchez and writes:

Lastly, I would like to thank Alexis Sanchez of Arsenal Football Club. You were able to score some thunder-banging goals from seemingly impossible scenarios. This was responsible for about 80% of my happiness over the past year.

What a gesture – and one Sanchez probably didn’t expect his footballing ability to attract.

Now the student will be hoping the Chilean attacker can help Arsenal beat Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup tomorrow night before gunning down Swansea at the weekend.
