Sanchez Denies Winning £20K Bet on Mourinho’s Sack

Alexis Sanchez has issued a denial over reports he won a £20,000 bet with team-mate Marcos Rojo over Jose Mourinho losing his job.

Mourinho was sacked by the club on Tuesday, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having been brought in on a temporary basis until the end of the 2018-19 season.

And The Sun reports that the former Arsenal forward boasted about Mourinho’s sacking in a WhatsApp message to his team-mates.

The newspaper alleges he stated: “I told you so!! Patience is all it takes. Rojo you owe me £20k!”

Alexis has taken to social media to dismiss the story, insisting it is not true and that he respects Mourinho for bringing him to Old Trafford.

“This is FALSE!!!. Jose gave me the chance to play for the best team in the world and I only have gratitude for him,” the Chilean wrote.

“We are a truly United team. We are MANCHESTER UNITED. Respect. I can’t wait to help the team! Good luck tomorrow family!”


Interim manager Solskjaer has his work cut out in delivering a top-four finish as his side find themselves 11 points behind Chelsea, who currently occupy the final Champions League spot.

Alexis, meanwhile, is unable to assist his team-mates at the moment having been sidelined with a hamstring injury.

United face Cardiff, whom Solskjaer suffered relegation with back in 2014, looking to end a run of two games without a win.
