As if Alexis Sanchez needed to make any more enemies at Arsenal, it seems as if a bizarre event during the Gunners training earlier in the week has set off more debate around the Chilean and his relationship with Arsene Wenger.
Video footage shows Alexis walking onto the training field with a number of his Arsenal teammates. As they approach Wenger, the experienced manager shakes the hands of two Gunners before heading toward Sanchez. Whether intentional or not, the Chilean doesn’t notice his bosses offer of a handshake, culminating in an awkward moment caught on camera.

While the video has been used by a number of media outlets as a divisive move, initiating more speculation about Sanchez’s future, the truth is that we do not know if the 28-year-old’s actions were intentional or not.
Regardless, the footage has given Arsenal fans plenty of debate and the ones who clearly felt Sanchez meant to ignore Wenger took to Twitter to vent their frustrations…
As much as I hate Wenger that shouldn't run. Get him out

Good. No respect for someone who constantly shows disrespect to club & manager. He perpetually refused to shake AW's hand when coming off
