Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho lamented the failure of Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez at Manchester United, claiming that in the English store he was «not a happy man», and wished him the best in his new adventure at Inter Milan.
The Portuguese coach was leading the ‘Red Devils’ when Alexis arrived at the Old Trafford club from Arsenal FC. Then, due to the team’s opaque walk in the 2018-2019 campaign, Mourinho left the institution and his place was taken by Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Asked about the presence of the ‘Wonder Child’ at United, ‘Special One’ stated in dialogue with The Telegraph that «I felt I was not a happy man. And I think in the job you’re in, when you’re not happy it’s hard to perform at any level.»
Even former Real Madrid strategist Inter and Chelsea led a self-criticism about his work with the tocopino. «Perhaps I was the one who wasn’t able to introduce myself and get the best out of it. As a coach you sometimes have the ability to get the best out of the players and sometimes you don’t succeed in that approach,» he said.
«But the reality is that I always felt that Alexis was a sad man. Then probably in Italy he can recover. I hope you can. I’m always going to wish the best to any player,» he added.
Alexis Sánchez can make his official debut this Saturday with the inter house of Milan, when the Lombards receive at the ‘Giuseppe Meazza’ to Udinese for the third date of the Italian Serie A 2019-2020.
