‘Spoilt Child’ Sanchez Demands To Leave Arsenal Following Wenger Bust-Ups

Alexis Sanchez has made it clear to Arsenal he wants to quit the club this summer following a series of bust-ups with manager Arsene Wenger and his fellow team mates, according to the Mirror.

Sanchez is approaching the final year of his current contract at the Emirates and so far we’ve been unable to agree terms over an extension despite holding several rounds of talks with his representatives.

The Chilean superstar has cut a frustrated figure at times on the pitch in recent weeks with the attacker seen to be berating his team mates, sulking and storming off the pitch at full time.

The Mirror claim that Sanchez has also been involved in a number of run-ins with team mates in the changing room after games and on the training pitch, and the player has become increasingly difficult to manage.

A row was widely reported to have erupted in the changing room following our 5-1 defeat at Bayern Munich and the newspaper says that Wenger was left ‘furious’ with Sanchez’s performance at the Allianz Arena, with the boss feeling his attitude was wrong and he was too selfish.

It appears relations between Wenger and Sanchez are at breaking point as the Mirror claim the pair have been involved in a number of bust-ups in training and the boss feels the 28-year-old’s antics are affecting morale in the squad with Alexis acting like a ‘spoilt child’.

Wenger’s patience, according to the paper, finally snapped last week following another run-in on the training pitch where Sanchez made it clear he wont be signing a new deal and demanded to leave the club this summer.

The boss decided enough was enough and felt it was best to leave his top scorer on the bench for Saturday’s trip to Liverpool to protect the harmony within the team for such an important game.

Upon hearing he was dropped, Alexis was apparently furious and the Mirror say he was still fuming after the game at Anfield and was barely able to control his anger.

The situation is a total mess and it sums up where Arsenal are right now. Sanchez is clearly frustrated at how our season is going and being a born winner, he’s letting his frustrations boil over.

However, no player is bigger than the club and if Alexis is being a disruptive influence on the rest of the squad then he’s giving the manager little choice but to leave him out.

It’s difficult to see how we can salvage the situation and Alexis is almost certainly leaving this summer, especially if Wenger stays and signs a new deal.

Unfortunately we have to play the second leg of our ‘dead rubber’ with Bayern Munich tomorrow night but it’s going to be interesting to see if Wenger picks Sanchez of leaves him on the bench again.

    Fictional article from a very fertile and imaginative mind. Alexis could not have had a row or bust up with Arsene Wenger; and even if he has with his teammates, the only reason that makes headlines is because the club (along with the said Sanchez) isn’t winning games, as such bust ups is an everyday affair at most clubs. The media should quit this idea that the individual is bigger than the club/team. This only goes to unnerve the entire team which is clearly the game plan for those who want nothing than to get Manchester United into the top 4 at any cost.

    Pity our fans have only played into their hands with the narrative that somehow, it is Alexis vs Wenger. Arsene will leave in the summer, anyway, so what all this does is to affect players’ confidence. Arsenal played good football and always competed before Alexis and Ozil. If anything, Alexis has brought a selfishness to his play that wasn’t there, carrying on like he’s better than everyone else and ensuring everyone knows it. How can that help spirit? If he wants out, we can start early to plan for his replacement.

    A PLAYER WHO PERFORMS AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL AND GIVES 120% EVERY GAME IN A TOP TEAM EXPECTS REWARDS (TROPHIES), AS REASURENCE THAT HE IS MAKING THE BEST OF HIS LIMITED TIME FOOTBALL CAREER. FRUSTRATION BUILDS UP FOLLOWING MEDIOCRE OUTCOMES OF SEASON AFTER SEASON; SOMEBODY IS OBVIOUSLY NOT DOING HIS JOB.
    WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, MR. WENGER SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASIGNED A LONG OVERDUE DESK JOB AT LEAST 5 YEARS AGO. SANCHEZ IS NOT TO BE BLAMED.
