It was great for Arsenal fans at the time, hearing that Alexis Sanchez had snubbed a Liverpool transfer in favour of a move to the Emirates stadium, even though Liverpool’s star striker was heading in the opposite direction. And the Frenchman has this week admitted that he was worried about whether Brendan Rodgers would have the advantage in the Sanchez chase because of that.
After the taunting and disrespectful words flung in our direction when the manager thought their was a release clause in the Suarez contract and tried to activate it, it made it all the sweeter that Alexis became a Gunner, with Rodgers showing some sour grapes by claiming it was living in London that made the difference, not playing for Arsenal.
So Rodgers may not like the report in The Mirror today that reveals the real reason for the Chilean’s decision, according to a source close to the Arsenal front man. Not only did he see the Gunners as the bigger club, but he saw Wenger as the better man to work with.
The source revealed, ““Alexis based his decision on a number of factors.
“The fact that Arsenal is a top club and Arsene Wenger is a top manager were two of them.”
Now all we need to complete the misery of Liverpool and their boss is for Alexis to lead Arsenal to a famous victory at Anfield today….. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!
