Arsene Wenger - Sanchez, Ozil Situation An Ideal One

Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger gave a rather funny answer when asked about two of his stars having one year left on their contracts without any renewal plans which he called the situation an "ideal One"

Alexis Sanchez, who has been on the news recently because of his potential move away from the Emirates stadium And Mesut Ozil have only twelve months left on their contracts, the former having links with Manchester City and Paris Saint Germain.

The Arsenal Boss said it will soon be common for players to let their contracts run out as Jack Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla and Kieran Gibbs are also in the final years of their contract.

"It is an ideal situation - everyone has to perform," Wenger said after his side defended their Emirates Cup title despite a 2-1 loss to Sevilla on Sunday.

"In the future you will see that more and more, players going to the end of their contract. Why? Because transfers become so high, even for normal players, they will go to the end of the contract because no one will want to pay the amount of money that is demanded. I am convinced that in the next 10 years that will become usual.

"When you are a football player you perform until the last day of your contract. What does it change if you have two years or one year to go? If you go out on the football pitch you want to play and you want to do well.

"Do you really think that you sit in the dressing room before the game and think, 'Oh I only have one year to go I will not play well today'? Where does that come from?

"When you're a football player you want to go out and play and do as well as you can. What does that have to do with the length of your contract? How long do you know that you will work for your company? As long as you work you do well.

"Nobody knows if Sanchez will not extend his contract here. The performance on the day does not depend on the length of the contract. If that was true we would sign everyone for 20 years."
Arsene Wenger allowed his own contract run out thus year before signing another but said the Sanchez, Ozil situation cannot be compared to his.

"My situation was different. It impacted the players. For an individual player, it does not," said Wenger.

"What can I do? One day [Alexis] will go and Arsenal will go on. We will all go one day and Arsenal will go on. Hopefully. Of course, I think he'll stay. How many times have I said that?"
