Alexis Sanchez has reportedly benefited from Jose Mourinho’s sacking to the tune of £20,000 after winning a bet over the Manchester United manager’s abrupt dethroning.
The Sun (who have been unearthing these coruscating United exclusives on a daily basis) allege that, after Mourinho was canned, Sanchez sent a Whatsapp message to a group chat with several of his teammates which read thus:
I told you so!! Patience is all it takes. Rojo you owe me £20k.
This follows claims (also made by The Sun) that Paul Pogba began high-fiving his teammates and talking like a poorly-scripted NPC after learning of his manager’s demise.
Who knows? Maybe it’s all true and such was life in Mourinhograd. Despondent, loveless, bleak.
Maybe now the toxic fog will finally lift and United can get back to doing what they do best – raking in those lucrative Indonesian mattress sponsorship contracts while drawing 2-2 against Southampton.
