Alexis Sanchez Bust-Up Report 'Completely False,' Says Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger insists reports of a training ground bust-up involving Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez are "completely false".
The Chile international was a surprise omission from the Gunners' starting line-up in Saturday's 3-1 defeat by Liverpool at Anfield, a decision for which Wenger drew widespread criticism.

Reports later emerged that Wenger made that call following Alexis leaving the training pitch mid-session leading to a heated exchange with teammates.

Speaking at a news conference ahead of Tuesday's Champions League last-16 second-leg tie with Bayern, he said:
"Yes, [reports of a falling out with Alexis are] completely false.

"I understand you have to fill newspapers and I respect that. We have to accept that."
