One player the Frenchman is backing to adapt to the Premier League quickly is Arsenal's other new summer signing, Sead Kolasinac.
The electric start to the campaign, with a match on the Friday night opening the league programme for the first time, was the prologue for a fast match of punch and counter-punch.
"But I don't want him to go and in the end he made a decision to stay and it was one of the days of recent weeks for me because I know how important he is".
With less than a year remaining on Sanchez's current deal at the Emirates Stadium, the Chile global has been linked with a move away from the club and that he could even walk away for free at the end of the upcoming season.

"It was very clear by showing what he did past year was not enough for him", he said.

Regardless of the club, something the reporter makes pretty clear, the player was asked if he'd like to work under the Portuguese manager again: "Being honest, no doubts about it". However, just to remind you we have 33 players and they are all good players.
The Chilean striker is strongly linked with the exit door at present, having allowed his contract to enter its final 12 months, and has so far failed to agree terms on a new one.
The Serie A side have now said they will not increase their offer and Shakespeare is happy to have Mahrez in the team.
"Personally, I think he is a hugely talented player, he's on the way up and he will continue to move up because the potential is there", he said. "Riyad has been very focused".
