Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs veteran defender Tsepo Masilela lists Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez as the toughest player he has ever faced, and rates Real Madrid's Bernabeu as the best stadium.

The 32-year-old played in Spain's La Liga during the 2011/12 campaign for Getafe.

During this period, the left-back faced Madrid at their home ground and was praised by then coach Jose Mourinho for his performance.

"It's the way it's built. It's very compact and, because of that, the supporters are very close to the pitch," he told the club's official website.

"It all creates a magnificent atmosphere."

He also faced Sanchez for Bafana in 2009 when the national team faced Chile in Polokwane.

As such, Masilela rates the current Gunners forward highly.

"He was a real menace. He was so quick as well. What a player!"
