Arsene Wenger - I Am Supported By The Board On Alexis Sanchez

The Arsenal Boss Arsene Wenger told the media that, it is is decision to keep Sanchez in the team irrespective of the situation of his contract and the prospect of losing him on free transfer by the end of the season.

Alexis Sanchez, who returned to training, this week in preparation for the new season, is out to see out the remaining year of his contract at the Emirates and the Arsenal Boss insists that he is supported by the board.

"Yes, the board supports me to make the decisions on a technical front," Wenger replied when asked if he had 100 per cent backing from the board to decide who comes and who leaves.

"I can tell you is that he is focused, and my decision is clear: he will stay and he will respect that. It is as simple as that.

"Every negotiation has to be a little bit secret. The transparency of society is very pushy but we have to resist a little bit, as much as we can. I think he will be here this season, and if we can do it for more seasons we will do it as well."

Alexis Sanchez will have to see the remaining year of his contract while his teammate Jack Wilshere is given the exit door.

Wenger said: "That decision is not completely made, I want him to have a chance to play somewhere as well.

"We have to decide that a bit later. I wanted first him to come back, he is coming out of a fracture. It is the first week he is back in full training and we have to sit down together and see where we go from there.

"Yes [it will be a difficult conversation]. I made him start at a very young age. He has gone through difficult times, I want him to have the career he can have and I am quite open on that."
