Former Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, who controversially joined Premier League rivals Manchester United three months ago, has revealed what he chose to do after hearing about the imminent departure of Arsene Wenger on Friday.
The Gunners came into this season with a lot of speculation surrounding the future of the Chilean star who refused to extend his contract at the club.
Many believed the 29-year-old was not interested in remaining at the Emirates stadium due to his rough relationship with Wenger and several teammates in the Arsenal squad.
Only a couple of months after Sanchez’s transfer to Manchester United, Wenger announced on Friday that he would be leaving the club when the season is over.
Thus, following his side’s 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup on Saturday, the ex-Barca star revealed that he chose to send the departing Arsenal boss a farewell text message after hearing about his announcement.
