Arsene Wenger has hit out at Ryan Bennett, claiming the Norwich defender “could have killed” Alex Sanchez last weekend.
Wenger was furious after seeing Bennett shove his Chilean forward into a camera pit during the 1-1 draw at Carrow Road, with the ball already out of play.
The Arsenal boss remains unhappy with the ground-level opening’s near-pitch positioning and believes Sanchez neared a fatal accident.
“First of all it is dangerous to have a camera there. He could have killed him,” Wenger said.
“Secondly, he didn’t need to push him like he did. I think the camera position was absolutely dangerous.”
Sanchez was removed from action on the hour-mark after picking up a hamstring strain, with Wenger refusing to rule out the incident caused the injury.
“I don’t know,” he added. “There are so many specialists to predict absolutely everything. A hamstring injury. He had hamstring injuries in Barcelona as well.”
The 26-year-old attacker joins a long list of Arsenal injuries, with Laurent Koscielny, Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta, Francis Coquelin, Danny Welbeck, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere and Thomas Rosicky already sidelined.
