Sanchez ‘Uncomfortable’ At Arsenal, Ozil Singled Out For Criticism

By on October 29, 2014

Some interesting reports coming out of Chile that claim Alexis Sanchez is growing increasingly ‘uncomfortable’ at Arsenal due to the lack of support he’s getting from team mates.

Sport Witness first pointed out the story in La Tercera - a Chilean newspaper that regularly keep their readers updated on how ‘Golden Boy’ Sanchez is doing – and they claim that the 25-year-old isn’t as content at the Emirates as it may seem.

La Tercera state that Sanchez is already feeling that he’s being relied on too much and is growing increasingly frustrated at the lack of support from his Arsenal team-mates, with Mesut Ozil singled out for his lack on contribution so far.

A line from the report says:

“His stay in the British capital has not been so sweet, it has emerged that he is uncomfortable with the little support from his colleagues, especially the German Mesut Ozil, the most expensive player in club history.”

It’s fair to say that Arsenal have been something of a one-man team in recent weeks as Sanchez has certainly been our stand-out player and made the difference in several games this season, so you could understand his issue to an extent – if this report is accurate.

However, there are many factors that must be taken into consideration. Key attacking players like Walcott, Ramsey and Giroud have all been on the sidelines while the criticism of Ozil is slightly baffling considering he’s currently on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Sure, Ozil wasn’t in top form before his injury but he was largely being played out of position and showed his class when he was played in a more central role.

While there is a concern that Sanchez could grow frustrated if he continues to carry the team, I don’t think there is anything to worry about just yet as this report is probably nothing more than speculation, rather than coming directly from the players camp.

    I do not believe there is a word of truth in the reports! Sanchez is extremely well paid, loves his football, and has scored 8 goals this season. Even if he has carried a team with 8 or 9 injuries, he will be delighted with his form in his first season. Why would anyone not wish to be the main man. Ozil is a class player,has had mixed form, but his stats are excellent, considering he is not always in the thick of it! Some players work hard, others with massive talent work smart, Ozil is obviously in the latter category. Its interesting that Ozil was in the German World cup winning team, since the World cup, Ozil missed 2 games and Germany have not won. The media always have an agenda against Arsenal players, they still cannot believe Arsenal spent over £75 million pounds on 2 players. They hate it, this goes against there narrative of Arsenal not spending money! COYG

    No,no thats not tru i think sanchez is fully compoteble in arsenal considaring what he is doing for the club,and i hope chez him self is fine with his club,he is loved by all,fans,by th club,all officials,and even all the football fratanities allover theworld, any club needs such kind of charactor of wich 75%of the clubs annot afford him,so arsenal needed such compacted breviest player and they got him so please all the outhers,media,reporters all over the world stop joke from sanchersz opportunity ,he has all the time inhis hands and the future will tell and the world will take him above ,
    But abve all wenger must,and shd not overloard sanchez, wenger must get outthere and find 1or two strikes who habe the same quality as sanchez, I hope with this arsenal will be at good condition even to challange the Epl to the fulllest

    I would be surprised if Sanchez is not concerned by the performance of the team at large and the Manager’s one dimensional game plan. He will be comparing it with a previous club.
