Sanchez: I wanted to quit Man Utd after first training session

first_img Loading… “They start laughing and I told them that something did not sit right with me. It had already been signed.” Sanchez recalled a match against West Ham in September 2018 when Jose Mourinho opted to leave him out of the matchday squad entirely. He said: “In a game with West Ham I wasn’t picked. That had never happened to me as a player. It bothered me and I said it couldn’t be possible. “To go from being one of the best in the Premier League to not playing in five months. I came to my house and I was very sad. The next day I trained in a double shift, because I love what I do.” read also:Inter get Sanchez boost for Europa League final Defeat to West Ham at Old Trafford was one of Mourinho’s last in charge as United dismissed the Portuguese with the club languishing in mid-table. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the reins in December of that year and Sanchez swiftly took the opportunity to discuss a move away, first joining Inter on loan the following summer. He added: “I told him that I needed to take a breather, and the opportunity to go to Inter. He told me that yes, there was no problem.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Alexis Sanchez has sensationally claimed he wanted to tear up his Manchester United contract and return to Arsenal after just one training session at Carrington. In January 2018, United reportedly paid Sanchez more than £500,000-a-week to prise him away from the Gunners in a straight swap deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan go the other way. However, the Chile international’s dream move to his boyhood club quickly turned into a nightmare as he made just 21 starts across his first two full seasons at Old Trafford, having arrived in his pomp from north London. He scored just five goals in 45 appearances in total before sealing a season-long loan move to Inter Milan for the 2019-20 campaign – a transfer which he eventually made permanent earlier this summer. But the 31-year-old has now revealed his move away from Old Trafford would have happened much earlier had he got his way. Sanchez said in an Instagram video: “I got the opportunity to go to United and it seemed tempting to me. It was something nice for me, because when I was a kid I liked that club a lot. “I ended up signing without much information about what was happening in the move. The first days that I was with my colleagues, sometimes there are things that you do not realise until you arrive. “The first training I had I realised many things. I got home and I told my representative: ‘Can’t the contract be terminated to return to Arsenal?’”center_img Promoted ContentWhat Is A Black Hole And Is It Dangerous For Us All?Which Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Couples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?
