The Alexis Sanchez training ground bust up
Long before Arsenal were stuffed 5-1 by Bayern Munich for the third game in a row between the two teams, there was the Alexis Sanchez training ground row to occupy Gooners.
Sanchez was left on the bench for the start of the Arsenal defeat at Liverpool on Saturday and this issue dominated the weekend.
Whilst the Chilean came on and set up Danny Welbeck for Arsenal’s goal at Liverpool, further revelations emerged on Sunday.
Pires spills the beans
Whilst Arsene Wenger initially said that he decided to drop Alexis due to the fact he wanted to play long ball, it emerged that there was a training ground row last week.
On Tuesday night, before the Bayern defeat, Robert Pires was on BeinSports and he confirmed the training ground row.
Pires, despite having retired from professional football, still trains with the Arsenal first team.
The former French attacking midfielder confirmed there was a “clash”, that Alexis was sanctioned and that Laurent Koscielny confronted the Chilean.
