Barcelona attacker Alexis Sanchez has revealed that coach Gerardo Martino has given him "amazing confidence" this season.

The 24-year-old struggled at Camp Nou last season, but has impressed in the early stages of the new campaign.

"The confidence for a player is everything. If there is confidence provided on the pitch, a player can do many things," Sanchez told reporters at a press conference.

"I feel really good this year, very comfortable and confident. Tata Martino gives me an amazing confidence that allows me to be more free on the field."
