One of the postives to take from the Stoke’s game is the telepathic understanding between two of our top players, Sanchez and Ozil.
The duo were literally on fire, and that translated to the 4-1 away win against the Potters. This has raised some dust as to whether they would remain at the club beyond the duration of current contract.
However, Arsene Wenger is optimistic that the duo would extend their stay at the club.
on Alexis and Mesut’s recent form underlining their commitment to the club…
Yes, of course. Maybe one day I will be able to speak about that, but I don’t question, at the moment, their focus and their determination because every game they turn up and give strong performances.
on if it could prove tough to keep them if we don’t make the top four…
No, because they are part of the results as well. Like I am. Overall, I think first of all they are under contract and secondly they behave like they want to be in the Champions League and like they want to be at the club. They don’t behave like players who are disinterested in the future of the club.
Rumours have that Sanchez and Ozils’s contract extension largely relies on our ability to make the Champions League spot. Only time will tell.
