Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has backed Alexis Sanchez to win the trust of the fans after playing for the Gunners for the first time since his Manchester City move fell through.
The Chile international came on for the final 15 minutes of the 3-0 win over Bournemouth, and a section of the fans were not amused by his entry.
Sanchez, who was the Gunners’ top-scorer last term, received jeers when he replaced Danny Welbeck in the second period, but he nevertheless looked lively with the limited time on the pitch. Shortly after the game, Wenger admitted that Sanchez is fully focused on the job at Arsenal, and he will win back the fans through his performances.
He said: “Alexis Sanchez is very focused on the Premier League and the Europa League and he wants to do well. He is still a bit short physically. He will be quickly back to his best. He will win the fans back, and win them back very quickly.” (more…)
