Arsenal lost a great player in Alexis Sanchez: Arsene Wenger

IANS | London |

Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger said the club lost a great player in Chilean star forward Alexis Sanchez after he secured a move to English football giants Manchester United.

Sanchez recently joined the Manchester club as a part of the straight swap deal with Armenian forward Henrikh Mkhitaryan who moved to the London side.

“We lost a great player,” the Frenchman was quoted as saying by Sky Sports on Wednesday. “But when a team does not know what’s going on, there is less clarity and less focus on what’s important – the performance.

“Now we know we have to deal with that and get on by everybody giving a little bit more,” Wenger added.
