The Chilean is enjoying some much-needed vacation after playing with his national team in the Confederations Cup at the end of a very tiring season, but Arsene Wenger made sure to… remind him of Arsenal.
I have spoken through text and it was very positive. My thoughts are always positive. There’s not a lot to resolve at the moment with the player
the manager of the Gunners told reporters in Australia, revealing that he has been in touch with Alexis Sanchez, but only through texts.
Players like Alexis Sanchez played the whole season, finished the season really tired and went off to play in the Confederations Cup. You can’t tell them they are not having a holiday and must come back and continue, it’s impossible
the Frenchman then said, asked about Sanchez’s absence from Arsenal’s Pacific tour. As for when he expects him to be ready to play;
Usually you need three weeks but he will have a program and can be involved after one week to ten days, and play a part in games. It also depends on the shape he comes back in
was Wenger’s answer. Sanchez has one year left on his contract, and is yet to agree a new deal with the Gunners.
