His Presence Was Toxic- Star Man Takes Fresh Dig On New Winger

Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.

Former Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard has revealed how the Arsenal players felt about Alexis Sanchez.

The forward refused to sign a new contract with the Gunners and was eventually allowed to join Manchester United in a swap deal including Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The Chilean’s departure left a sour taste in the mouth of Arsenal supporters and apparently their players were not too keen on the whole fiasco, either.

Gerrard has claimed that Sanchez was “toxic” around the club and it was a good job they granted his leaving wish.

The BT Sport pundit thinks Arsenal will be able to kick on now that they have freshened up their squad with the capture of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

“With Sanchez going, it seemed to me that it was going toxic in the dressing room,” Gerrard told BT Sport.

“I think all of the players might have gone into their shell with all of the problems he was causing.

“It is a clean slate and everybody else might get a bit of confidence from that.
