Arsene Wenger hits out at Serge Gnabry ‘attitude’ despite Chelsea masterclass

Serge Gnabry was a star performer in Bayern Munich's 3-0 win over Chelsea but has been called out by Arsene Wenger.

The German scored twice at Stamford Bridge and caused the Blues untold problems as they were outclassed by the Bundesliga champions.

The winger has found London to be a happy hunting ground with his two-goal performance adding to the four he smashed past Tottenham.

But Wenger, who previously coached Gnabry at Arsenal , claims his attitude has always been questionable despite his undeniable talent.

“This guy has no real limitations,” he told beIN Sports . “It’s more about how much does he want to suffer?

“He has pace, power, technical ability, he is very intelligent but sometimes he looks for the easy way. That was his problem.

“I sent him to West Brom and it didn’t work out at all. In fairness, I think we had an agreement with him and Bayern stole him away from Bremen.

“He is a good player. He has individual ability and collective ability.”

Gnabry made the switch from Werder Bremen to the Allianz Arena in 2018 and has become one of the Bavarians most influential players.

He is closing in on 20 goals for the season and is clearly better off for his move to Germany having previously been criticised by Tony Pulis as well as Wenger.

But the former Gunners boss confessed his move to Bayern was always set to happen after he turned down a new deal in north London.

“We had an agreement with him,” Wenger added. “Because he didn’t play at West Brom, I let him go with the under-21s in the summer with the German national team.

“He did very well, he was fresh, we had prepared him, fast to sign his new contract.

“Then suddenly he wanted to go to Werder Bremen but it was not Werder Bremen who bought him, it was Bayern Munich.

“It was six months later, less than a year, he went from Bremen to Bayern but it was a done deal before. He was at the end of his contract and we thought he would stay.”
