No comment from Arsenal or Manchester United on Alexis Sanchez missed drugs test
Arsenal, Manchester United and the FA have all to declined comment on Alexis Sanchez's missed drugs test.
With the Chilean in Manchester to finalise his move from Arsenal earlier in the week, Uefa officials turned up at the North London club's training base to conduct routine drug tests with some of the players. Sanchez is said to have been one of those selected for a test.
Reports claim that Arsenal's failure to inform Uefa that Sanchez would be elsewhere has raised concern with anti-doping authorities.
There is no suggestion of wrongdoing by Sanchez or the clubs, but a Sky Sports report indicates that Arsenal, Manchester United and the FA have all to declined comment on the missed test.
Sanchez is in line to make his Manchester United debut in the club's fourth-round FA Cup tie at Yeovil on Friday evening. His first taste of Premier League action is expected to come when United travel to Wembley to face Tottenham on Wednesday night. His home debut will probably be the game against Huddersfield the following Saturday.
