Who Sanchez was seen talking to in West Ham tunnel – and why it’s significant

Alexis Sanchez is the latest Manchester United star to publicly fall out with Jose Mourinho as problems worsen at the Old Trafford club.

The Chilean performed badly in the Red Devils’ 1-1 draw with Wolves and was subsequently dropped from the squad for their next Premier League fixture against West Ham.

Reports in Chile claim the forward was reprimanded by his boss and told he was going to be dropped in front of his team-mates in the Manchester United changing room.

Despite not being able to come off the bench for United, the club’s best-paid player travelled with the rest of the squad to the London Stadium.

He was seen talking to his former Arsenal team-mate Lucas Perez, who is now at West Ham, in the tunnel.

And there are genuine fears that the Chilean is starting to regret his big-money switch to Manchester United.

The Red Devils had hoped that a fresh Sanchez – who wasn’t at the World Cup – would hit the ground running this season and propel United up the league.

But so far Sanchez has yet to reach anywhere near the levels he would regularly hit when playing for Arsenal.

One argument is that he was utilised through the middle at Arsenal , with play centred around him, while at Manchester United he has been deployed out wide.

Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku are used down the middle instead, and Sanchez is having to adapt his game around the other big names at the club.

Sanchez isn’t the only player who has had a falling out with Mourinho in recent weeks.

The Portuguese has been embroiled in an ongoing clash with Paul Pogba, with whom he shared a frosty exchange with on the training ground ahead of the West Ham defeat.

Mourinho attempted to play down the issue, claiming usually those sorts of situations are more heated.

He said: "When you say it’s disruptive or you got on camera me speaking with Paul I am happy that you don’t come here more times because you would get much more than that.

"I can promise you, much more than that. Much louder much more aggressive. Words with a completely different dimension, you would get a lot.

"So I’m really happy that the rules are 15 minutes [a month]."
