WENGER DISMISSES DRESSING ROOM DISPUTE
Arsene Wenger has dismissed claims of a dressing-room row in the wake of Arsenal’s 5-1 Champions League defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
A number of reports suggested Alexis Sanchez was involved in a heated debate with some of his team-mates after yet another frustrating Champions League evening.
“No. Not at all,” Wenger stated at a news conference when asked whether an incident took place.
“Everybody was deeply disappointed, but there was no incident in the dressing room.”
Sanchez was pictured at Heathrow Airport the morning after the defeat, reigniting uncertainty around his future with his contract due to expire in 2018 and a renewal yet to be agreed.
However, Wenger clarified the Chile international was handed a brief break ahead of a court case in Barcelona and will resume training at the weekend.
