There was no doubt that the Arsenal and Chile international striker Alexis Sanchez was frustrated for a lot of the Champions League defeat away to Bayern Munich in midweek and who can blame him? I do not really like it when any player loses his cool and calls out their teammates during a match but with Alexis being virtually on his own in terms of effort to close the Germans down, stem the tide and get something going for the Gunners, you can understand the Chilean’s feelings.
So with the striker still to decide on, or at least to sign, a new contract with Arsenal, the worry is that our star man could be heading off to pastures new come the end of the current campaign. After the size and manner of the loss in Munich this week following on from the vanishing of yet another Premier League title challenge, Alexis is likely to call it a day in the opinion of the former midfielder and now football pundit Danny Murphy.
He wrote in a report for the Evening Standard that he expects both Sanchez and Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal in the summer and the only thing he thinks might stop both of them going is if the boss does and Alexis thinks that thinks might change for the better in terms of the Gunners challenging for major trophy honours.
Is it either Wenger or Alexis heading for the Arsenal exit, or both?
Dare I ask which would you choose?
