Alexis Sanchez has responded to reports of a training ground bust-up by posting a message on Instagram showing his commitment to Arsenal.
The Chilean reportedly stormed out of training recently with other claims stating he had argued with team-mates and manager Arsene Wenger.
Wenger has since insisted all reports are “completely false” and that he has an “honest and normal relationship” with Sanchez as he has with every player.
The two were pictured shaking hands at an open training session on Monday morning and Sanchez has now given his thoughts on the recent rumours flying out of the Gunners.
“The true warrior fights not because he hates the ones in front of him, but because he loves those behind him. Let’s go Gunners. The only failure is not trying,” he wrote on Instagram.
Un verdadero guerrero no lucha por odio a los que tiene enfrente. Si no por AMOR a los que tiene detrás ⚪️🔴 let 's go Gunners . "el único fracaso es no intentarlo. " ⚽️ The true warrior fights not because he hates the ones in front of him, but because he loves those behind him. 🔴⚪️ Let ' go Gunners. " The only failure is not trying." 💪🏽
While the mesasage is somewhat cryptic it does appear that Sanchez is attempting to show his commitment to the club after what has been a difficult few days.
Sanchez was left out of Arsenal’s starting line-up against Liverpool, which ultimately prompted speculation of unrest, only to come on at half-time and visibly lift the team.
Despite his arrival Arsenal still slumped to a damaging defeat that leaves them fifth, two points behind Liverpool although they do have a game in hand on the Reds.
Arsenal will be hoping that Wenger and Sanchez can move on from the recent headlines and finish the season strongly. Despite the doom and gloom there is still plenty to play for. A top four finish is in the club’s hands while the FA Cup also offers the chance to finish the season with some silverware.
