Sanchez hasn’t scored since returning from a slight hamstring strain three weeks ago.
Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has revealed that he’s sometimes frustrated by the club’s training programme which is enforced by Arsene Wenger.
The Chilean has enjoyed a wonderful first season in English football, scoring 18 goals in all competitions for the Gunners.
His form has dipped of late, after struggling with hamstring and knee problems as the rigors of the Premier League catch up with the former Barcelona man.
The reasons behind his lackluster form maybe run deeper, Alexis revealed that he often wants to train harder than usual to remain in condition but Wenger prevents him from doing so.
“Sometimes I want to train more than necessary and [Wenger] won’t let me,” Alexis told Fox Sport.
“But he knows better than me. He is an example to young players and he has years of experience in football.”
Wenger preventing Alexis’ desire to overexert himself in training could be the Arsenal boss foreseeing that his star man would eventually run into a brick wall eventually.
To the contrary, Arsenal’s £35m man may need to maintain that level of intensity to produce the form he showed until the new year.
Whatever the case is, Gunners fans will be hoping to see a reinvigorated Alexis Sanchez to make sure they have a positive end to the season.
