Alexis Sanchez has revealed what he did and how he felt following his first training session under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.
The Chilean joined the Red Devils from Arsenal in a move that surprised many in January 2018, but what might have surprised people more was the winger's poor form in a United jersey.
After just a year and a half with the 20-time English champions, Sanchez signed for Inter Milan on a season-long loan deal, a move he has since made permanent after seemingly rediscovering his passion for the game.
Speaking recently about his time at the Manchester club, the 31-year-old revealed that he wanted to return to Arsenal after his first training session.

"After the first training session I realised many things, I came home and asked my family and my manager if I could not break the contract and return to Arsenal, something did not fit me, but I had already signed," he said in a video posted on his Instagram account, according to Goal.
"Months passed and I kept feeling the same. We were not united as a team at that time.
"The journalists also spoke without knowing and it hurt. Former players also spoke and had no idea what was happening inside the club. And they hurt me.
"A player also depends on the internal environment, that we need to be a family. We weren't like that, and it was reflected on the field. If someone had to be blamed, they blamed me.
"I do self-criticism and should have played better. But I was always blamed, even if I played for a few minutes."
Sanchez scored just five goals and assisted nine further strikes in 45 appearances for United.
