Sanchez was a completely isolated figure during his final few months at the Emirates and the almost the whole dressing room had started hating him.
Now journalist Raphael Honigstein has revealed some striking details about the incident which led the Chilean to exit London and join the Red Devils.
Honigstein told the Totally Football Show podcast: “It has become a bit of a joke to laugh at Arsenal because they made the noise ‘finally we got rid of Alexis Sanchez’, but I think it’s been under-reported just how badly the whole Arsenal dressing room hated Alexis Sanchez.
“They really felt that he was just playing up to the camera doing all these things like ‘Oh I’m trying but nobody else is! What am I doing here?
“Arsenal would put up stats inside the dressing room last year after every game showing the amount of kilometres run, the passing, and Sanchez would regularly come out with the lowest mileage by a big distance and the players would just go absolutely bananas at him playing to the camera and making all these moves like ‘Oh, they’re just not worthy of me! What am I doing here?
“So they really wanted to get rid of him. Whether they have improved as a team is a different story, but I think it is a happier dressing room.”
While the Arsenal dressing room might be a happy bunch now that Sanchez has moved out but it seems that the forward is facing the same problems at Old Trafford.
