Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has conceded that he is concerned that if the Gunners continue to disappoint, Alexis Sanchez may look elsewhere.
Wright was a pundit for BT Sport on Tuesday night, and made his feelings clear in a post-match rant after the Gunners had been defeated 3-2 by Olympiakos at the Emirates, as reported by The Express.
Sanchez was undoubtedly one of the star performers for the Gunners again as he scored his fourth goal in his last two games to bring his side level at 2-2.
However, Arsene Wenger’s men couldn’t hold on and conceded a third just minutes later to suffer their second defeat in as many games in the group stages of the Champions League this season.
As a result, that leaves them at risk of missing out on advancing to the knockout stages, and with the pressure on to make the top four in the Premier League this season with Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and several others providing stiff competition, Wright is worried that the club’s season might start to unravel.
The 51-year-old was particularly upset with the decision to rest Petr Cech, as reported by The Express, with back-up goalkeeper David Ospina’s blunder ultimately costing the Gunners.
It remains to be seen how the situation develops in the coming weeks and months, but Wenger will hope to improve his side’s consistency which in turn should silence the talk of his top players leaving the club.
