Arsene Wenger had admitted how wrong he was to have been playing Alexis Sanchez as a striker last season but the Frenchman feels the player’s improvement has made him adapt to his current position.
The Chilean international who has been thriving in his current position for the Gunners registering a sensational hat-trick in a game against West Ham in last weekend Premier League game.
Wenger has now admitted that his experiments to field the player as a lone-striker didn’t work out before, but the efforts and hard work of Sanchez give improvement as the player grow stronger into a formidable forward. Sanchez who now has 11 goals in the Premier League this season so far more than he had last season at this stage of the league.
Wenger told Arsenal.com “He has developed very well as a centre-forward because he has found a good mixture between coming short and going in behind.
“He has more freedom as well and he takes advantage of his short technique in the middle much more.
“I always saw that in Alexis and I must honestly say that when I played him there last year or two years ago I was wrong. The times I tried him through the middle were not convincing and I even remember against Everton I changed it at half-time.”
