‘Alexis Sanchez And I Always Used To Fight’
A Manchester United player, who previously had a bad relationship with Alexis Sanchez, has talked about the Chilean joining the Red Devils.
Argentine defender Marcos Rojo, who has played against Sanchez at club and international level many times before, has admitted that he and the ex-Arsenal superstar have not always got along.
The 27-year-old is delighted to now be teammates with United’s new signing, and hopes he can make a massive difference to the team.
"I have faced him a number of times, playing either against Arsenal or Chile," he told Inside United.
"We always seem to have fought on the pitch so it’s better we’re on the same side as we always ended up kicking each other.
"That's my style and the way I play. I've been this way since I was a kid. I am very aggressive and emotional on the pitch.
"I'm a very typical South American player. We're very aggressive. It is something in my blood. I'm not going to change.
“But Alexis (Sanchez) is a great person, now I've got to know him. He is a fantastic player and I hope he brings his maximum level to United.
"He's settling in well. He's got a new house. In fact, it’s the one I had when I first arrived at United."
Sanchez has played four times so far for his new side, scoring once and assisting once.
