Alexis Sanchez Breaks Silence After Being Benched By Arsene Wenger
Alexis Sanchez has broken his silence after reports claiming he had been involved in a training ground row with his Arsenal team-mates.
Quoting English writer GK Chesterton, he posted: “The true warrior fights not because he hates the ones in front of him, but because he loves those behind him.”
The impression is that Sánchez has had enough at Arsenal and will seek a summer transfer, with Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain keen to sign him. But speaking ahead of Arsenal’s Champions League last-16, secong leg tie with Bayern Munich on Tuesday, Wenger denied he had fallen out with Arsenal’s top-scorer. “I am not aware. Nothing happened. Nothing at all,” he said. “I explained after the game at Liverpool that I decided to go for a more direct option in the game.
“That was the unique reason for my decision. All the rest, his attitude – he’s a committed player and sometimes has excessive behaviours but you have that many times in the history of every squad.
“[I have a] honest and normal [relationship with Sánchez]. Like with every single player.”
