Push ‘could have killed’ Sanchez

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claims Gunners forward Alexis Sanchez could have died after colliding with the camera pit at Norwich final weekend.

Sanchez fell into the boards behind the objective after an apparent shove by Ryan Bennett, despite the fact that the Norwich defender denied it was a deliberate push.

“1st of all it’s dangerous to have a camera there,” Wenger mentioned.

“He could’ve killed him. He didn’t want to push like he did. I believe the camera position was definitely harmful.”

Bennett, 25, tweeted right after the match  to give his version of the incident, writing: “Genuinely was trying to quit not push Sanchez just to clear that up.”

Chile forward Sanchez landed heavily in the cameraman’s area on the touchline in the course of the very first half at Carrow Road, and although he was fit to resume he was later forced off with a hamstring injury.
