Arsene Wenger is wrong if he thinks he can keep Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal long term, according to Martin Keown.
“Wenger is probably hoping he can somehow win the Premier League and keep Sanchez,” Keown said at the FA and McDonald’s Community Awards.
“Meet his needs from a trophy point of view and find some way to match his contract demands – but I don’t see that happening.”
Keown instead thinks it is a foregone conclusion Sanchez will leave, but he does not expect the South American to down tools while under contract.
“I don’t think Sanchez is the kind of player to shut up shop, he signed a contract in good faith,” he added.
“Wenger will be relying on the fact he’s someone who loves playing football and giving his all. They can work something out because he’s certainly made his mark at the club and been successful, so if he’s going to go he should do it in a dignified way.
Gooners, do you think Sanchez will give his best for Arsenal this season after being forced to stay at the Emirates?
