Alexis starting to regret his Arsenal transfer? by DN
The Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez must have expected a bit more from his new club when he made the decision to snub Liverpool and come to us instead after deciding to leave La Liga and Barcelona behind. With players like Mesut Ozil in the team and with Arsene Wenger finally starting to make the big money transfer moves, Alexis would at the very least expected the Gunners to put up a decent challenge for the Premier League title.
Alexis was speaking the other day, in an interview reported by the Daily Express, about his early impressions of his new club and football in England. The 26-year old was sounding very positive and insisted that he had no regrets whatsoever about his choice and that Arsene Wenger and the other players at the club were excellent to work with.
He said, “So far I am happy at Arsenal. To play in a league that I love, at a fantastic club, with very good teammates and an world-renowned coach that really cares about his players… All the people are great.”
So far, he said, but that was before our latest little run of results was brought to a crashing stop with a tame defeat away to Southampton. Once again the Arsenal defence showed its frailty and this time the Chilean was not able to drag us out of a hole. I wonder how long Alexis will continue to be positive about Arsenal unless we start to show some serious improvement.
Let’s just hope that the injury problems ease up and the Gunners do not get knocked out of the FA cup and Champions League at the next stage. Because then, I think he might start to feel a few regrets. What do you think?
