Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin believes Alexis Sanchez’s demanding mentality became “too much” for Arsenal players.
The Chile international sealed a move to Manchester United last month after frustration towards his teammates on the pitch on numerous occasions during his time at Arsenal.
Sanchez scored 60 times in 122 Premier League games during a three-and-a-half year spell at Arsenal.
The 29 year-old was involved in a confrontation with Laurent Koscielny during a training session with Arsenal last season, while in December, the forward was at the centre of a bust-up with his teammates and was dropped by Arsene Wenger.
‘Alexis is an amazing player,’ Bellerin told the Oxford Union (via Metro Sport).
‘One of the best in the Premier League for sure but he is a player who always wants to win.
‘He demands from everyone, sometimes it can be too much. ‘The great thing is he wants to win, to give 100 per cent.
‘This season maybe things weren’t going as well for him but I truly believe he was giving 100 per cent.
Arsenal have continued to struggle despite Sanchez’s no longer troubling the atmosphere. A 5-1 demolish of Everton has been sandwiched by two away defeats – one to lowly Swansea and the other two bitter rivals Tottenham.
Gooners, are Arsenal better off without Sanchez? Let us know in the comments…
