Arsene Wenger on Alexis Sanchez: ‘He gives us many options, can also get behind defenders like Walcott’
Arsene Wenger spoke about his star summer signing Alexis Sanchez at his pre-New York Red Bulls press conference.
Wenger cited Sanchez’s multi-faceted attacking style, noting that as well as being able to play and score from the centre, as he does for Chile, he can also stretch defences and get in behind from wide positions.
Wenger likened Sanchez’s speed and movement off the ball to Walcott’s, which is a big advantage, he added, with Walcott only just returning from long-term injury.
‘He gives us something we were lacking a little bit.’
