If you've been waiting to hear my reaction to Sanchez's sacking, well, you'll have to wait a little bit longer. I wrote something up for SI.com on the matter and it will be up sometime Tuesday morning probably.
In short, though, Sanchez's bark was far worse than his bite.
One thing I didn't get to in the column was how this could tarnish his reputation as a player. Obviously, no one can take away his remarkable feats with Real Madrid. But will the public be able to separate Hugo the Coach from Hugo the Player? Right now, I would say no, not too easily but in the future, well, time heals most wounds.
