Arsene Wenger admitted Arsenal are at fault for Alexis Sanchez reportedly missing a drugs test as he completed his move to Manchester United but said both the player and club have "nothing to hide".

Reports surfaced on Thursday evening that the Chile forward had fallen foul of the English Football Association's 'whereabouts' rule by allegedly not being present for a routine doping test on Monday.

Sanchez was still registered as an Arsenal player when the apparent infraction occurred and Wenger conceded the club must take responsibility for the issue.

"It is just a bad day for him to be tested," he said. "Honestly, on the administration side it would still be our responsibility because he had not moved."
