Update – Wenger on whether he will speak with Sanchez after angry incident
Arsene Wenger has responded to the much publicized moment from Saturday’s victory at Swansea City involving Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean international has often been lauded for leading the Arsenal attack this season after beginning the campaign in a new centre-forward role.
Sanchez continued his inspiring form this weekend with another strike against Swansea, his 16th goal in all competitions this term.
However, the 28-year-old produced an angry reaction after being substituted for Danny Welbeck following 79 minutes of action.
As expected, the incident has been scrutinized by many in the media but when asked if he will specifically address Sanchez’s behaviour, Wenger gave little away.
“We speak always, about everything. Honestly I cannot even answer [on whether I will speak with Alexis]. I don’t look, I don’t look at that.” the Arsenal manager said after the 4-0 win at the Liberty stadium
“I look at how well the players do who come on, how comfortable they are, because Danny Welbeck has not played for two years. That’s for me much more important than an individual response.
According to Wenger, the reaction from Sanchez was nothing new to him.
“All the players are frustrated when they come off, some show it, some not. I am long enough in the job to know that. I just make the decision I feel is right and that’s it. Nothing more than that.” he said
