Ian Wright believes Alexis Sanchez became frustrated with his Arsenal team-mates last season due to their lack of commitment.

The Chile international was a controversial figure for the Gunners throughout the 2016-17 campaign.

Sanchez failed to agree a new contract with the north London side despite having less than 12 months on his current deal.

The South American became increasingly erratic on the pitch and wasn’t afraid to berate his team-mates in front of the Arsenal fans.

Arsene Wenger dropped Sanchez from the starting line-up for Arsenal’s 3-1 loss to Liverpool at Anfield back in February.

Sanchez has been linked with a potential move to Premier League champions Chelsea ahead of the 2017 summer transfer window.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and Serie A finalists Juventus have been touted as potential destinations for Sanchez.

Speaking to BBC Sport about why Sanchez became frustrated with his Arsenal team-mates, former striker Wright said:

“I think he gets frustrated because some of the players around him are not as enthused as he is.

“I think that’s where his frustrations – or tantrums as some people call them – come from. But he delivers.

“You will get something from him and that is something you can’t level at a lot of the Arsenal players.”

Arsenal won their third FA Cup in four seasons thanks to a 2-1 win against Premier League champions Chelsea at Wembley.
