Alexis Sanchez Admits He Regrets Leaving Arsenal For Man United
Alexis Sanchez regrets his decision to leave Arsenal for Manchester United and is furious with manager Jose Mourinho.
Sanchez forced his exit from the Emirates in January, after threatening to run down his contract.
United beat eventual champions Manchester City to his signature, after agreeing an eye-watering £500,000-a-week deal.
Since then, the Chilean attacker has been unable to reproduce his best form, scoring just three times in 23 appearances. He was dropped for Saturday’s defeat at West Ham.
Reports claimed Mourinho had given the 29-year-old a dressing down in training earlier in the week and Sanchez was said to have been left stunned by his manager’s decision to omit him from the match day squad.
The Daily Mirror reports Sanchez held a lengthy conversation with his former Arsenal teammate Lucas Perez, who joined the Hammers in the summer, in the London Stadium tunnel and now feels he joined the wrong club.
“For many months people are asking for Martial, Martial, Martial.
“For many months people are saying Alexis Sanchez is not playing well enough. So this week was time to agree and to say, let’s give a chance to Martial and let’s leave Alexis out,” Mourinho said after the match, explaining his decision to axe Sanchez.
