While he’s yet to play a game for his new club Manchester United, Chile forward Alexis Sanchez has been accused of missing a routine drug test as he finalised his move from Arsenal earlier in the week.
The 29-year-old footballer who is currently the English Premier League’s highest paid player 0n £350,000 per week was supposed to take a mandated drug test on Monday but was said to have been unavailable at his old club Arsenal at the time.
His former manager Arsene Wenger, however, denies that there was anything to hide and it was just an accident. ‘It is a special day for Alexis Sánchez because you have to do paperwork, you have to travel and is he still our player on Monday or not? You don’t know with negotiations going on. I think it’s a special event for him to miss a drug test because he was certainly busy somewhere else with his agent. Overall he has been tested so many times here that it is no worry for me that he has any doping problem. It’s just a bad day for him to be tested.’
Sanchez was the subject of a protracted transfer saga between Arsenal and Manchester United that finally went through this week.
