Arsene Wenger Reveals Reason Alexandre Lacazette Has Never Been Full
Arsene Wenger explains the reason why he still did not give full confidence to the new striker brought in this season by breaking the club’s transfer record, Alexandre Lacazette betpro88.com. He argues that the strategy and refresh factors are the reasons he has for each player.
Since joining from Lyon, the French international striker has only performed once for 90 full minutes in the Premier League, in 13 appearances so far. The Arsenal supporters are left wondering what exactly is the reason why managers are constantly replacing the 52 million pounds player in every game.
Lacazette has already scored six goals, and the last one she made when she scored from the bench in a 3-1 defeat at Manchester City at Etihad Stadium.
Olivier Giroud is likely to take on the French squad at the 2018 World Cup, but Lacazette still needs to convince Didier Deschamps that he is worthy. That he proved by buying two goals against Germany in a friendly match in early November.
However, Lyon’s record-breaking goal in the season was only able to make one appearance as a starter in the World Cup qualifying round.
Though he scored 76 goals in his last three seasons in Ligue 1. But it seems, there is something unfair in the selection of strikers from Deschamps own.
For example, Karim Benzema still can not collaborate with Antoine Griezmann, Anthony Martial, Kylian Mbappe, Nabil Fekir and Giorud in the Les Blues national team. In fact, he is threatened not to participate in Russia, as the tailings of extortion cases involving him with Mathieu Valbuena.
Refreshment and variety of strategies
On Tuesday morning, the veteran manager of Arsenal told the reporter the real reason why Lacazette was replaced too often.
Wenger said: “First of all, I would say that you replace strikers more often than defenders because they have to be creative, fishing and become sharp.”
“But I think he’s physically adapted in the Premier League and I’m very happy with him.”
“I also do it [replace Lacazette] because I have a choice on the bench which is fresher and can give us variety in attack.”
“Physically, the Premier League is a very demanding competition and is required to work hard. If you look at other teams they also change the striker after the 70th or 80th minute. ”
“Sometimes they [the strikers] work as they normally do against two or three people, in your attack provoke, and behind you respond, and fishing is much harder, more demanding.”
Lacazette is projected to return from the start when the Gunners meet Huddersfield Town on Thursday (30/11) early morning. But do not be surprised anymore when he did not play full and replaced in the second half. (Source: Mirror)
