Alexis Sanchez left a fantastic club for a giant club – Jose Mourinho

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on Thursday said Alexis Sanchez has moved from a “fantastic club to a giant club” after joining United from Arsenal.

The Chilean moved to Old Trafford in a swap with Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan heading the other way.




Mourinho hailed Sanchez as one of the “best attacking players in the world”, confirming he will be in the squad to face Yeovil in the FA Cup.

United travel to the fourth-tier club on Friday at the start of a weekend that will also see Premier League leaders Manchester City tested by Championship high-fliers Cardiff City and Liverpool taking on West Brom in the fourth round.

Sanchez is available for the Huish Park tie because he did not appear for Arsenal in their third-round loss at Nottingham Forest.

“We’ve got one of the best attacking players in the world. I think he’ll be very important for us because we want to have the best players possible,” Mourinho told reporters.

“Alexis is a player that becomes more than a player because of his multi-functionality,” he added. “I say he can play in four different positions in attack.”

Earlier this week Yeovil, playing United in the FA Cup for the second time in four seasons, reacted to Sanchez’s potential debut.

“You said you’ve joined ‘the biggest club in the world @Alexis_Sanchez so it’s only right you start your #MUFC career in the biggest away dressing room in @SkyBetLeagueTwo. Maybe,” the club tweeted.
