Alexis Sanchez was brilliant for Arsenal in his first season or two and scored lots of important goals for us, but seemed to cause division in the dressing room and alienated a lot of his team-mates. By the end of last season it was very obvious that he wanted away from the Gunners and decided to sulk because he wasn’t allowed to go to Man City in a mega-money deal in the summer.
The first few months of this season he was absolutely awful and his body language told us he was no longer a team-player with the rest of the Arsenal squad, and I think most of them were relieved when we finally got rid of him to our arch-rivals Man United in January. He was shown to be a mercenary who only wanted to go where the money was rather than accept Man City’s lesser deal although that was where the trophies were to be found.
Alexis has hardly been impressive for United either, but when he finally had a good game against Tottenham he was asked what the difference was from playing at Arsenal, and he replied: “It is very different here,”
“I think United is a club with more history and we want to win trophies next year.
“We need to keep progressing; United is a big club, to which I am still adapting, and I am looking forward to giving everything I’ve got next year and aiming to win everything there is to win.”
That was bad enough for disrespecting Arsenal’s history, but he made it clear how he felt about us after being in the United side that got a last gasp win over our reserves on Sunday.
This is what he posted…..
I personally think he is a money-grabbing mercenary and we are well rid of his selfish and sulky face out of our club, but I wonder if any Arsenal fans still like him and miss him?
