Former Arsenal and Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez has admitted he felt like going back to Arsenal after his first training session for Manchester United.
Sanchez revealed this on his Instagram page on Thursday night, telling the story about his failed move from Arsenal to Manchester United in 2008.
“I accepted the opportunity to go to United,” he said in a video he posted on Instagram, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“It felt tempting and it was something good for me, I liked this club a lot when I was a kid. Eventually, I signed but I didn’t ask for information on what was happening inside the club.
“Sometimes there are things that you don’t realise until you get there, and I remember the first training session I had, I realised a lot of things.
“After the session, I got home and I told my family and my agent ‘can you not rip up the contract to go back to Arsenal?’. They laughed, I told them there’s something that doesn’t sit right, it doesn’t seem good.
“But I already signed, I was already there. After the first few months I carried on having the same feeling, we weren’t united as a team in that moment.
“I’m telling you my experience, the journalists at times would speak without knowing the facts and it hurt, they had no idea what was going on inside the club”
The Chilean United in the 2018 January transfer window, managed to make 45 appearances and scored 5 goals before moving to Inter Milan.
