Alexis Sánchez Slams Report Claiming He Made £20k Bet On José Mourinho's Sacking

Alexis Sánchez Slams Report Claiming He Made £20k Bet On José Mourinho's Sacking

Alexis Sánchez has broken his silence and responded to claims that he had made a £20,000 bet on Manchester United to sack José Mourinho.

The Sun reported that the 30-year-old Chilean international had messaged fellow teammate Marcos Rojo on WhatsApp about a bet they had.

According to the newspaper, he supposedly wrote: "I told you so!! Patience is all it takes. Rojo, you owe me £20k."

However, the former Arsenal and Barcelona star has taken to Twitter to slam the publication's story as "false."

"José gave me the chance to play for the best team in the world and I only have gratitude for him," he added. "We are a truly United team. We are MANCHESTER UNITED.

"Respect. I can't wait to help the team! Good luck tomorrow, family!"

The former United manager, who was sacked on Tuesday, brought Sánchez to Old Trafford as part of a swap deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The Red Devils star has failed to replicate his form from his Gunners days, but he could kick-start his career under new caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
