Former Arsenal striker, Alexis Sanchez reveal the reasons he moved to Manchester United because he did not feel ‘loved and important’ in former club and believes it will not be the same in Old Trafford.
The 29-year-old, Chilean international who has been handed the number 7 shirt at Old Trafford, indicated that ‘feeling important’ was part of his decision to leave the North London club.
In an interview with MUTV, “He indicated it is important for the club for me to be here,” he said, “I also believe that the club itself cared about me joining, and I got the impression that they were keen for me to come here and wear the number seven shirt.”
“I think that also gets through to the player. Players sometimes need to feel important and loved by the club. That was one of the things that attracted me to come here, along with the manager, who is a person who won everything in Italy, the same as he did in Spain, and he’s a manager who likes to win.”
“So yes, I’m fulfilling a dream and I hope to give my very best and win many trophies at this club.”
The Chilean is the latest big-name signing for United since Mourinho was appointed in the summer of 2016 and Francis believes Sanchez’s arrival will help their quest for silverware.
