Reports via the Mirror claims former Arsenal player Alexis Sanchez was reportedly furious with Jose Mourinho after the Manchester United star was dropped for the club’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham over the weekend.
The Chile international forced his exit from the Emirates in January after threatening to wind down his contract and United beat eventual champions Manchester City to his signature after agreeing an eye-watering £500,000-a-week deal.
Sanchez has been unable to replicate his Arsenal performance since joining the Red Devils, having scored just three goals in 23 appearances since making the switch in January.
It is understood 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 matchday squad.
The report further claims Sanchez has expressed his frustration to former teammate Lucas Perez with the Mirror claiming he feels he has joined the wrong club after his dramatic exit from the Emirate Stadium.
‘For many months people are asking for Martial, Martial, Martial,’ said Mourinho after the match, explaining his decision to axe Sanchez and hand the France international a rare Premier League start.
‘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.’
