Man Utd star bet $25K on Jose getting sacked

Man United star reportedly bet $25K on Jose Mourinho getting sacked

December 21, 2018 By Ali M.
And then he gloated about winning in the players' WhatsApp group.

While some Man United players were content on merely celebrating Jose Mourinho's exit, one went the extra mile and bagged money off of the Special One's exit. That man is none other than Alexis Sanchez.

According to the Sun, the Chilean ace had a bet with team-mate Marcos Rojo in which he wagered roughly $25,000 (£20,000) on the Portuguese tactician being asked. Once the confirmation of Jose's departure arrived, the South American attacker allegedly wrote "I told you so!! Patience is all it takes. Rojo, you owe me £20k" in the players' WhatsApp group in response.

While it was no kept secret that the former Arsenal man and the Portuguese manager did not see eye to eye, this report will only paint another ugly picture of the team's dressing room amid their disastrous season. The Red Devils men have been criticized for their lack of professionalism, especially in the wake of the club's decision to part ways with the 55-year-old.

Paul Pogba has stolen the spotlight but for all the wrong reasons after reportedly openly celebrating Mourinho's sacking. While a deleted tweet with a photo of the Frenchman smiling shortly after Tuesday's announcement was brushed off as a pre-scheduled post, it is believed that the World Cup winner led the dressing-room celebrations after the managerial shake-up.

Pogba allegedly said: "He thought he could make a fool of me and turn the fans against me. He f***ed with the wrong baller." It has been stated that Michael Carrick had to intervene to calm the players down and remind them that no one is bigger than the club.

Alexis hasn't done himself any favors as well, should this claim be true, as the Chilean has failed to impress since arriving at Old Trafford. The once highly-rated 30-year-old joined the 20-time Premier League champion from Arsenal back in January but has done nothing to show he is worth his hefty wages.

The player is now facing an investigation from the club and could be sanction should he be found guilty, with the Man United board being alarmed by his actions. Currently out injured, Sanchez had been linked with a January exit and it will be interesting to see if things change now that Ole Gunnar Solskjær is in charge.
