I have just read one of the most ridiculous Anti-Arsenal articles of all time! According to a report in today’s Star, they report: “The £35m summer signing from Barcelona, according to Chilean newspaper La Tercera, has already fallen out with some of his team-mates, including the Gunners’ record signing Mesut Ozil.
It is a sensational claim from Sanchez’s homeland given that he has enjoyed a blistering start to life at the club following his move from the Nou Camp.
Despite Arsenal’s mixed beginning to the new season, the 25-year-old Chile star has netted an impressive eight goals in 15 appearances and received huge praise from manager Arsene Wenger for his performances.”
This is absolute gutrot and is aimed at destabilising the Gunners dressing room as usual. So someone in Chile has made up a story about Sanchez despite him spending all his time in London right now.
And how can he have “fallen out” with anyone when he has clicked on the pitch impressively, and can hardly speak with any of the other players until his English improves? Not to mention that Ozil hasn’t been able to train with the team since his injury sustained against Chelsea three weeks ago. Listen instead to Mikel Arteta, who must spend as much time with Alexis than anyone else in the world.
Arteta said on Arsenal.com: “Alexis is one of the best,”
“He’s very committed. Even in recovery sessions he wants to go outside and train to keep improving.
“It’s a different culture and language for him so he doesn’t necessarily understand what we are saying at some times but he wants to play football and I think he feels comfortable as well.”
So who are you more likely to believe? An unsubstantiated report from a rag, or a comment from an Arsenal team-mate?
