Alexis Sanchez: My future and frustrations


By Williams ‘Bantu’ Irubor

Alexis Sanchez admits he has been “frustrated” at times this season, and told reporters he will decide his Arsenal future in the summer. The Chile international is under contract with the Gunners until 2018, but says the team have not lived up to expectations this season.

Ahead of Arsenal’s Nissan Super Sunday clash with Manchester United, he talked about his frustrations, when he will decide his future, and whether it will hinge on Arsenal finishing in the top four in the Premier League.

When asked how the week has been especially after the poor result against Tottenham, Sanchez admitted the team were disappointed about losing to Spurs because it was a game they really wanted to win, especially because of the rivalry between Arsenal and Tottenham. They were all very down in the dressing room straight after the game because it’s one that they simply didn’t want to lose especially for the fans.

Ahead of their game on sunday against Manchester United, Sanchez went on to say they have to try and win every game until the end of the season if they are to finish in the top four this season.

The Gunners have managed to finish in the top four since Arsene Wenger resumed responsibility at the club, if they finish below the top four it will be their first time in twenty two years.

There have been speculations that Wenger would step down as Gunners’ boss if Arsenal don’t qualify for the Champions League next season, but the Frenchman has refused giving any hint concerning his future plans.

The Gunners are currently sixth on the table with five matches left for them. This has put them in an uncomfortable position and increased their desperation, with their only hope of silverware this season hinge on an FA Cup final against Chelsea.
