Former Manchester City defender, Micah Richards has said that Chile international Alexis Sanchez became a laughing stock at Manchester United.
He said that Sanchez move from Arsenal to Manchester United made him ended up as a ‘laughing stock.’
Sanchez moved to Arsenal from Barcelona in 2014 for a fee of around £35m and became a key player under Arsene Wenger.
He scored 60 goals in 122 Premier League appearances, and also helped the Gunners win the FA Cup in 2015 and 2017 – scoring in both finals.
However, expectations were high when he moved United in 2018 but he managed just three league goals in 32 appearances as his career nosedived.
“He became a laughing stock at Manchester United,” former Manchester City defender Richards said on the BBC’s Top 10 podcast.
“At Arsenal he was quality and he worked hard. He had skill and creativity. He was a go-to man.
“It was sad when he went to United because I thought it was going to be a great move for him.”
