Thierry Henry has claimed that Alexis will have no intention to stay after Arsenal’s disgraceful performance against Liverpool this weekend.
The Chilean has been strongly linked with the exit door for some time now, and has allowed his contract to enter its final 12 months, and looks highly unlikely to be willing to extend that deal.
Sanchez returned to the playing squad following an injury for yesterday’s defeat, and the collective display by our side was horrific to watch, and Thierry Henry believes Alexis will have to leave looking at that.
Henry said: “Why would he stay after watching this? After this type of performance?
“That is why they [Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain] are not renewing their contracts. There is something wrong with Arsenal at the minute.
“It was unwatchable, at one point I wanted to leave. I don’t relate to the team and I don’t think a lot of the fans do. That is a problem.
“The word I have used for a long time is comfort. Everything is comfortable at Arsenal.
“Everyone can stay, you don’t try to find out the player you can be, it’s ok to play well, and if you’re not playing well there’s not the pressure you should have at a big club.
“You are not even competing. It’s on them to change it, but everything is nice and it cannot be like that.”
Has Arsene Wenger lost the control of his players? Does the manager have the personality traits to fix the issues, or is he too comfortable in his role as well? Will Alexis push to leave this week?
