Alexis Sanchez’s future at Arsenal could be in doubt following his reaction to being substituted against Norwich City last weekend.
The Chile international was visibly perturbed after being subbed off by Arsene Wenger in the 84th minute.
He walked straight down the tunnel, instead of watching the rest of the match with his teammates, while blanking Wenger. After that, according to the Telegraph, the world-class forward stormed out of the Emirates Stadium.
The report adds that Wenger was unimpressed with Sanchez’s reaction – despite insisting in public that it merely demonstrated his desire to play – and the atmosphere between manager and player is understood to have been frosty in training this week.
While Sanchez is expected to start against Manchester City on Sunday, Arsenal may now find it difficult to convince the South American to sign a contract extension with the Gunners.
The 27-year-old has two years left to run on his current deal and would not be short of potential suitors if he decided to leave the north London outfit.
