Alexis Sanchez’s latest tantrum that continued in the Arsenal dressing room after the 3-3 draw with Bournemouth has left a number of his team-mates fearing the forward will leave, reports the Daily Telegraph.
Despite coming back from three goals down to snatch a point against the Cherries, the Chilean publicly displayed his displeasure at team-mates who over-zealously celebrated their comeback when time remained to find a winner.
The Telegraph claim Sanchez’s mood continued long after the full-time whistle as he tried leave a message with his colleagues.
Sanchez has 18 months left to run on his contract at the Emirates and his latest outburst has added to growing fears in the Arsenal camp that he has grown frustrated with the club’s inability to sustain a Premier League title push.
Towards the end of last season, Sánchez reacted to being substituted in the victory over Norwich City by storming out of the stadium.
Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger warned him not to break club rules earlier this season. Sánchez breached protocol by taking and missing a penalty against Hull City in September, when Santi Cazorla and Theo Walcott were both on the pitch and ahead of him in the spot-kick pecking order.
Wenger reacted by telling Sánchez that he did not want to see a repeat of the incident and that the club’s penalty order must be adhered to.
