Alexis Sanchez Reveals What He Text Arsene Wenger After Arsenal Manager Was Axed

Alexis Sanchez decided against hailing Arsene Wenger on social media – and sent a personal message instead.

The Manchester United forward, 29, quit Arsenal in January and last night helped his new side into the FA Cup final with a fine header in the 2-1 win against Spurs.

And after his goalscoring display, Sanchez revealed what he sent to his former boss after he announced his exit.

The Chilean told Rodrigo Lara: “I text him yesterday to wish him the best.

“I could not say anything on social media but I texted him – and he replied to me saying thank you.

“It’s sad because he is a football legend. I always said he is a gentleman and a football master.

“He taught me a lot about respect and to be professional. I’m just so thankful to him.”

Sanchez was asked if Wenger had made him a better player since signing him from Barcelona in 2014.

He added: “Yes, a lot. He is a true gentleman.”

Sanchez’s strike against Spurs helped turn the tide after a slow start.

And the 119-cap Chile international admitted he had taken some time to adapt to life at Old Trafford and start repaying his huge wages.
