It won’t be an exaggeration to say that Arsenal Football Club are in complete chaos at the moment.
Last season’s FA Cup triumph, coupled with the promise of a new dawn at the club led to much optimism among the fans. Things were looking even better when they bought French striker Alexandre Lacazette for a club record fee of 50 million euros.
And with Wenger making it clear that the likes of Sanchez, Ozil and Chamberlain will not be allowed to leave this summer, Arsenal fans were quite eager for the start of the new season.
All that positivity has evaporated though. Arsenal’s humbling 4-0 loss at Anfield raised questions marks and sparked a crisis just three games into the season.
Arsene Wenger was left squirming in his seat, as the great man must have wondered if he had made the right decision to sign a new two year deal.
Wenger had made several baffling team selections ahead of the Liverpool match. Many people wondered if the decision to play Sanchez and Chamberlain was a wise one. As it turns out, not a wise one indeed.
Wenger immediately sanctioned Chamberlain’s sale, and accepted Chelsea’s 40 million bid for the Englishman.
But the Ox turned down that offer. One of the main reasons why the 24-year old wants to leave the club is because he wishes to play in the centre of the park.
He feels that he will be playing as a wing back at Stamford Bridge, something that he does not wish to do.
Chamberlain wants to move to Liverpool instead, where in he will stand a much better chance of playing in midfield.
