Why Arsenal players did not bid Alexis Sanchez farewell



Arsenal players did not post farewell messages to Alexis Sanchez, because the Chilean was not popular in the dressing, it has been revealed.

Sanchez left for Manchester United in the January transfer window, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan going the other way.

According to BBC’s David Ornstein, “He wasn’t very popular. He didn’t socialise with a lot of guys, he kept himself to himself with Atom and Humber.

“It was notable that there were no farewell messages from his teammates.”

Ornstein also claimed that the Gunners did not offer Sanchez a new deal, with the previous one set to expire in June.

“I was told by a couple of people that Arsenal didn’t make Alexis Sanchez a contract offer. They knew what he would’ve wanted and knew that they couldn’t come near it,” he added.
