Official ! – Wenger Reveals Why He Prefers Sanchez To Giroud

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger has revealed why he prefers Alexis Sanchez leading his attack ahead of France international Olivier Giroud.

Alexis Sanchez has scored 10 goals with 5 assists in 16 appearance this season.

Delighted with Alexis Sanchez form and fitness, Arsene Wenger had this to say to “He has the instinct of a real striker.

“He wants to hit you, he wants to go at you. When he gets the ball, he runs forward and he runs at any defender. He shows, maybe sometimes to excess, that dribbling quality is an important quality for a striker.”

Sanchez is the only Arsenal player to have won back to back Copa America titles along with FA Cup(s).

“It’s his game and you do not want to take that out of his game. His dribbling is provocative, it’s not retention, it’s provocative, to create damage.”

Compared to Olivier Giroud, Sanchez is the real deal in leading Arsenal to the premier league title.
