Arsaenal Balls: The ‘real’ reason Sanchez chose Gunners over Liverpool is…

by | 20th, December 2014

So. Why did Alexis Sanchez choose to play for Arsenal? The Daily Star has the truth. The headline declares:

Arsene Wenger reveals the REAL REASON why Alexis Sanchez chose Arsenal over Liverpool

What is the real reason. We thought it was a combination of money, London and Champions’ League football.

Paul Brown writes:

ARSENE WENGER claims Alexis Sanchez chose Arsenal over Liverpool because only the Gunners could match his Champions League ambitions.

Is that what Wenger said? No. He said:

“Transfers at that level take always time to get every detail right, so because it takes time, you think always that somebody else can come in – PSG, Bayern Munich. We met his agent in Brazil a few times and talked about the transfer. In Europe we did it with Barcelona. Once we got the decision he would like to join us we were happy. He had maybe not had number of games he wanted at Barcelona and I tried to convince him I could help him develop the quality of his game, that the way we play would suit him.”

But what is the ‘REAL REASON” Sanchez joined Arsenal. Brown has failed to deliver on the headline.

Over on Arsenal.com, Wenger says:

“I don’t know why he has chosen us and not anybody else, but we are very happy that he has done that.”

Such are the facts…
