Paul Ince has supported Alexis Sanchez for showing his emotions
Arsenal were humiliated for the second time by Bayern Munich last night in the Champions League, losing 5-1 at the Emirates and 10-2 on aggregate.
After Alexis Sanchez was subbed off in the second-half for Lucas Perez, the Chilean appeared to laugh as Arturo Vidal scored Bayern's fifth and final goal of the night.
And ex-Premier League striker Paul Ince has leapt to the defence of the 28-year-old, claiming he has every right to vent his frustrations on the sidelines.

"I think Alexis Sanchez is right to be unhappy at Arsenal," Ince told PaddyPower.
"You can understand after everything that’s gone on why he might want to leave.
"He’s a winner, he wants to win. You can’t be a team’s best player and be sat on the bench, like he was over the weekend.

Alexis Sanchez appeared to laugh during Arsenal's 10-2 agg defeat to Bayern
"Of course, he’s been a bit petulant – laughing on the bench against Bayern, or throwing his gloves on the floor against Bournemouth – but that's understandable.
"He wants to win, it’s a good trait to have. You could see his frustrations building for a while, and the way he reacted to being dropped against Liverpool can’t be a surprise to anyone.
"Why the hell would you not play him? He’s a player who isn’t happy unless he’s scoring and winning. And he’s not doing much of the latter at Arsenal."
