You read the headline correctly, and no, we are not trolling you.
Thousands of football supporters in Chile intend to take to the streets and demand that Alexis Sanchez leave Arsenal for the good of his career.
"Chileans are exhausted of watching one of our stars work alone so that their team can move forward", the description of the event said.
The protest was apparently sparked by Sanchez's body language during the 5-1 rogering Arsenal received from Bayern Munich in midweek.
Alexis Sanchez is a national hero having guided Chile to their first ever Copa America title (in 99 years of trying) in 2015 - and then came and repeated the feat the next year in Copa America Centenario 2016, both times defeating the Lionel Messi-led favourites Argentina in the final.

Thomas scored 13 of his 15 first-half points in the second, while Johnson led the way for Boston in the first with 10 points. As he did at least once earlier this season, Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg explained the final play call as "get it to Jimmy".
When you watch Alexis Sanchez, the vibe you get is that he wants more.
"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".
Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed on Friday morning that the Chile global, as cherished in his homeland for both his skill and his work ethic as he is by Arsenal fans, had returned to Barcelona for a court case.
"I believe we have the players and the quality to win many things", the Chilean told Arsenal's official YouTube channel.
