Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez reportedly won £20,000 off teammate Marcos Rojo as a result of Jose Mourinho’s sacking.

Old Trafford parted company with the Portuguese on Tuesday morning on the back of the United’s worst-ever start to a Premier League campaign.


The Chilean did not appear in any of United’s final six fixtures under Mourinho due to a niggling issue that has forced him to return to South America for recuperation.

As reported by The Sun, the 30 year-old revelled in his manager’s demise and even profited from his dismissal.

Sanchez is said to have sent a WhatsApp message to his teammates reading: “I told you so!! Patience is all it takes. Rojo you owe me £20k!’.”

The former Arsenal man was pictured riding a horse back home this week, despite being asked to rest so that he can return to action early in January.
