Ian Wright: This is the worst I’ve seen Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal
The former Arsenal striker believes Alexis Sanchez has hit a new low after his obvious frustration with the Gunners
Ian Wright says he is worried about Alexis Sanchez after the Gunners legend pointed out that the forward appears to be very frustrated at Arsenal.
The Chile international scored Arsenal’s first goal in a 3-3 draw with Bournemouth on Tuesday night after the Gunners came from 3-0 down to rescue a point on the south coast.
Sanchez struck a disgruntled figure after Arsenal’s six-goal thriller amid ongoing uncertainty surrounding the South American’s long-term future at the Emirates Stadium.
The Arsenal forward has scored 13 goals and has made seven assists in 20 Premier League appearances this term but the Gunners are still only in fifth place in the table.
Speaking to The Sun Goals podcast, former Arsenal striker Wright admitted that Sanchez’s frustration with the north London club appears to be at an all-time high ahead of their FA Cup clash at Preston North End on Saturday evening.
“He hasn’t got a bad attitude,” Wright said.
“If you look at his body language right now, you couldn’t make a good case for him to stay. You’re talking about someone who at Barcelona was an integral figure. For some reason he is doing that at Arsenal but he doesn’t seem to be getting anywhere. He is taking two steps forward and three steps back.
“That’s the worst I’ve seen him in terms of frustration. It’s not a good sign for Arsenal.”
Sanchez moved to Arsenal in a £35m deal from La Liga giants Barcelona in the 2014 summer transfer window.
