What Arsene Wenger has suggested Liverpool did to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

11 September 2017

The Liverpool captain had to wait patiently for his message to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to sink in because, apparently, Henderson had spent the last five years trying to convince his fellow England worldwide to switch clubs.

The 24-year-old midfielder started in both of England's games in the global break, and could make his debut on Saturday when the Reds travel to Manchester City.

Wenger also said he didn't believe the transfer speculation and possible tapping-up impacted Oxlade-Chamberlain in the heavy 4-0 defeat.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has described his decision to leave Arsenal for Liverpool as "the hardest I've ever had to make" but said he would offer no apologies for quitting the Emirates. I'm thinking 'are you telling us what you didn't have at Arsenal?' Are you looking for something else?

The England worldwide turned down the chance to move to Chelsea, as well as a new contract at Arsenal, and cited Liverpool's charismatic manager as one of the attractions in moving to Merseyside. That he can see that players love to play for him, there's a love and togetherness. You have to bring something on the table.

He called it "the best news" that the club can get that Woodburn is a Liverpool player, calling it "important" that they "try to protect him".

"You can find out on all players what they are not good at, but normally you also find out what they are good at".

Yet the manager hailed that "even when he's not physically in the best shape he's still hard-working" and that in recent weeks "everything came back" and he "played brilliant football".

Going into the match, there was plenty of speculation linking the 24-year-old with a move to the Merseysiders so it was pretty surprising that Arsene Wenger chose to field him in the first place.

We won that game but lost the return match at Arsenal when he started and played well, I think he hit the post.

"The worst moments of my life were under Klopp because, being well, I knew I could play some games, but he was honest with me", he told Marca.
