Wenger: Sanchez could have been killed

05 December 2015, 17:33

London - Arsene Wenger claims Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez could have been killed when Norwich defender Ryan Bennett pushed him into the Carrow Road camera pit last weekend.

Chile international Sanchez landed heavily in the cameraman's area on the touchline during an incident in the first half of Sunday's 1-1 draw and was later forced off with a hamstring injury.

He is now likely to be sidelined for several weeks and Gunners boss Wenger feels it could have been worse for the former Barcelona forward.

"First of all it's dangerous to have a camera there," Wenger told reporters on Friday.

"He could have killed him. Secondly, he (Bennett) didn't need to push him like he did. I think the camera position was absolutely dangerous.

"When he was pushed into the boards on the side of the field that did not shock anybody.

"That injury can come from that as well. I'm not expert enough to know but if you want to blame me I'm okay with it."

Bennett tweeted after the match to give his side of the incident, writing: "Genuinely was trying to stop not push Sanchez just to clear that up."
