Sick Leave: Alexis Sanchez asks for time to recover from illness after refusing to return for training


The Chilean claims to be suffering from an illness after Arsene Wenger asks him to return to Arsenal training.

Sanchez then went ahead to post a selfie on his Instagram page showing his fans the effect of the sickness.

The North London side is set to play in the Emirates Cup on Saturday and Sunday this weekend but Sanchez will not be involved after being given an extended summer break cause of his involvement in the Confederations Cup.

The selfie also featured him posing with his pet dog along with the caption “sick” where he wore a long black scarf to add to the overall effect.
