Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has left Arsenal fans raging in the wake of claiming he’s sick ahead of his training return on Sunday.
Arsene Wenger on Thursday asserted the Chile international, whose future at the Emirates stays unverifiable after his unwillingness to pen another contract deal at the club, would be back in training with his team-mates this Sunday.
Alexis was allowed a broadened break following his involvement in Chile’s Confederations Cup campaign earlier this summer. Wenger confirmed this week that both Sanchez and Mustafi, who also played in the competition, would return to training this Sunday.
In any case, Sanchez’s commitment has now been tossed into question after the 28-year-old took to social media to share a picture of him and his unwavering pooch with the inscription ‘sick’.
The former Udinese forward can be seen wearing a scarf inside and is claiming to have been laid low by a virus.
Sanchez has been a prominent point of discussion in recent week, with the player moving into the last 12 months of his contract with the North London club.
The Arsenal forward is believed to be keen to leave the club this transfer window as he hopes to play Champions League football, but Arsene Wenger has insisted that there has been no transfer request for from the player.
The Instagram post got more than 200,000 preferences and it left Arsenal fans angered. The Gunners’ fans reacted to Sanchez in their droves with harsh comments and replies like:
