Frustrated forward Alexis Sanchez: 'My future depends on Arsenal'


Layla Anna-Lee thinks this is the year that Arsene Wenger will finally finish outside of the top four.

The 67-year-old also oversaw the Gunners' move from Highbury Stadium to Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has defended manager Arsene Wenger, but again refused to commit his future to the Premier League club.

He called on fans to lay off Wenger, with some having staged protest marches outside the Emirates before recent home games to demand that the manager steps down.

"For me, [fan demonstrations are] very bad".

Sanchez is unhappy with the way his manager has been treated after nearly 21 years at the club.

"They are two special players for Wenger".

'He is the creator of the stadium, the players and style of the club'. Sanchez, however, believes that Arsenal fans owe Wenger for his tremendous contribution to the club.

Alexis Sanchez says that Arsenal's failure to challenge for the Premier League title has left him frustrated, but will wait until the summer to decide his future.

'I always said the same: I try to do my best, to support the team, to score goals, to win victories.

"We have made a decision to focus on the end of the season and talk about it in the summer".

Germany global Mesut Ozil put on an impressive display setting up Alexis Sanchez with the opening goal.

He added that he expected Arsenal to strengthen in the transfer window, saying: "I think that all teams always need to strengthen their squad with more players, like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich".

"Gabriel was wonderful, but today I think that the key player was Sergio", Guardiola said.

The Chile global was quoted in the Daily Mirror after he was questioned over whether he agreed with growing Arsenal supporter unrest, over Wenger's position at the Emirates, as the latter continues to play cat and mouse over his decision to pen a two-year contract extension or not. When you're a football player, you ideally want to be playing in a packed stadium, but we are quite spoiled with that at Arsenal.
