I do not think that most Arsenal fans would care too much to hear that our star striker was a right royal pain in the dressing room, as long as the Chilean kept scoring goals and providing assists to almost single handedly get the Gunners over the line.
And to be honest, I think that a lot of the best players in the world could probably be called a little bit arrogant or difficult to deal with, such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and many more, so the so-called revelations about the Arsenal striker revealed by our former right back Lee Dixon in a Metro report this week strike me as not very revealing or particularly important.
The ex Gunner said, ‘He’s not easy to work with from what I’ve heard,’ Dixon told ITV. ‘He’s quite difficult to work with on the training pitch.
‘He’s quite moody, certainly in training. From the feedback I’ve got from Arsenal he’s difficult in the dressing room.
‘I think Pep Guardiola has mentioned that as well, he’s a difficult character to deal with.
‘Everything has to go his way, from a team point of view you will see him push everyone around and try and organise, but he’s not easy to play with, that’s what I’ve heard.
‘I’ve seen him a lot at Arsenal and he passes you the ball if he can get it back, he’s one of them.’
I could be wrong but I have the feeling that this has been leaked deliberately by someone at the club in an attempt to soften the blow of Alexis leaving this summer. What do you guys think?
