Alexis Sanchez has reportedly thrown a strop after his surprise axing for the club’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham at the weekend.
The Chile international travelled to London but did not make the matchday squad as United lost to The Hammers and this supposedly went down pretty badly.
That’s according to the Daily Mirror, who claim Sanchez made his feelings clear by sulking his way through the game from the stands and also indicated as much to his former Arsenal teammate Lucas Perez when getting the chance to chat with him.
The report even suggests that Sanchez gave the impression to Perez that he regrets joining United after his move from the Emirates Stadium back in January.
It was one of the biggest stories of the season at the time, given how he snubbed the soon-to-be champions of England, Manchester City, for a switch to Old Trafford. But he’s proven a massive disappointment for the Reds and rightly lost his place in the side at the weekend.
However, who would have leaked such information about Sanchez regretting his move to United? That’s the big question here or perhaps the Mirror got slightly ahead of themselves when writing the report?
That’s a massive acquisition and one Sanchez should publicly deny if it’s incorrect. Otherwise, he’s playing a tough game to win over United fans.
He certainly wasn’t sulking vocally during the game. This is where I was sat. pic.twitter.com/ACiPcxLqJM
