Gunners boss believes Sanchez slows the side down.
Arsenal fans were thrilled this summer when they managed to beat Liverpool to Alexis Sanchez’s signature, but nobody expected him to get dropped so early despite proving his worth already.
However, according to Goal.com the manager has sought to ditch the Chilean international already as he believes that his passing style slows down the pace of the side.
Having preferred to use Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ahead of him for the games against Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur this weekend, the manager appears unconvinced by Sanchez despite the £31.8million forward’s eye-catching goals, pace and industry.
The Frenchman and his coaching staff are trying to drill into Sanchez the need to release the ball earlier rather than hang on to it for too long and lose the ball in dangerous areas.
The Arsenal coaching staff also feel that the way he uses the ball around the halfway line, as him having his back to the goal often causes the side to come under unnecessary pressure.
However, Wenger hopes that these training ground conversations can help the former Barca star to get back into the side and eradicate the mistakes.
