The Alexis Sanchez situation is becoming well documented in the media, with watchful eyes and cameras witnessing his every move, conversation and facial expression. Now how many sources there actually are ‘behind the scenes’ remains anybody’s guessing game, but one report from an ‘insider at the Emirates’ sheds a lot of light on the saga, if it’s deemed to be true.
The latest that we’ve heard is that Alexis Sanchez is frustrated at the lack of progression at Arsenal and has decided to leave the club in the summer. The Chilean has reportedly told a few other players in the squad of his intentions and as a result, this ‘insider’ reckons Alexis has become a bit of an outcast.
In an article by the Mirror (yes not the most reliable) an ‘insider’ has made a statement about the current situation regarding Alexis. The statement says: “Alexis is being moody and disruptive and it’s getting to the rest of the squad. The players are getting fed-up with it.”
“If it came to a straight choice between which side to choose, there is no doubt they would back the manager.”
It’s been well documented that there has been mighty unrest in the Arsenal squad recently, especially following the awful defeats and uncertainty surrounding Arsene Wenger’s future. But it wouldn’t be so unsurprising to consider that part of the reason for such poor performances, is a result of the mood in the squad.
It’s been reported that Laurent Koscielny has had words with Alexis about his mood and it’s understood that the Chilean is in real danger of letting the other players turn on him in a matter of opinion.
Not all the players surely have complete faith in Arsene Wenger to take this club above and beyond anymore. However whilst he’s still in charge for the rest of the season, they must have the will to play under him; otherwise nothing is going to change for this campaign.
