Wenger- Sina mpango wa kusajili

SANCHEZ-BENFICAWenger revealing afterwards that Giroud could be out for up to four months after undergoing surgery on a broken tibia, it was the ideal moment for Sanchez to showcase his ability to lead the line.

Asked if Sanchez could play at centre-forward during the period of Giroud’s absence, Wenger replied: “For three or four months? He can play his whole life at centre-forward.
“I bought him to play striker, not to play only on the flanks.”

Sanchez’s goal was his first since his £30 million ($50.4 million, 37.6 million euros) move from Barcelona, but Wenger said that he did not see the 25-year-old’s strike as the first repayment on his hefty fee.

“I don’t see it like that,” said the Frenchman.

“He had a good game, not only on the technical side, but on the fighting side. He was mobile, dangerous, and showed as well he has great fighting spirit; qualities that will be very important in the Premier League.”
on the possibility of buying any more players…

If you want to make everyone happy, you just always buy players.

But what is important is the performance on the football pitch and the solidarity we have shown tonight. 

Having said that, if you look at the players we have on the bench and those who are injured, we have players. 

I believe you cannot everytime buy when a player is injured.

on a defender or a midfielder being a priority…

We are open for any position as long as we feel that the player can strengthen the squad. 

Buy to buy, I don't see the purpose of that. If we find the players who we feel can give something to our squad, we will do it in any position. 

We are open but it has to be enough to buy. It has to make sense.

on whether he will sign Danny Welbeck…

on whether Alexis can play up front for 3-4 months…

For three or four months? He can play there his whole life. I bought him to play as a striker, not to play only on the flanks.

on Jack Wilshere's performance…

I feel from game to game he grows. He got some criticism recently and the best response is to show on the pitch that he's getting better and better.

 I think he has found a little burst to get away from people which he didn't have for a while. In the last two or three games you see it slowly coming back.

on Song returning and Ozil's performance…

Mesut Ozil's performance doesn't concern me and Alex Song will not be coming back.
