Sorry boss! Alexis Sanchez makes the mistake of sitting on manager Ole Solskjaer’s chair

first_imgManchester United forward was promptly reminded by interim manager of his place as he mistakenly sat on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s seat after he was taken off during the FA Cup match against Reading on Saturday.Sanchez came off in the 64th minute after being replaced by Marcus Rashford at Old Trafford. The 30-year-old Chilean striker unknowingly came and sat on Solskjaer’s seat but the manager immediately told him to sit on the chair in front.Sanchez played a part in both strikes amid a busy display in his first start since returning from injury.”Great pass by Alexis. That’s two in two he’s made, so that’s also a positive,” said Solskjaer, referring to Sanchez’s assist in the 2-0 league win at Newcastle on Wednesday.Sanchez went off just after the hour mark and appeared to point to his right hamstring.

Solskjaer can surpass Busby’s mark with a win at Tottenham in the Premier League next weekend, and more and more players are putting their hands up for selection, especially in attack.Juan Mata, from the penalty spot, and Romelu Lukaku scored the first-half goals to see off Reading at the Theatre of Dreams.advertisementThe trio of Mata, Lukaku and Sanchez is likely to start on the bench against Tottenham, with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard seemingly Solskjaer’s preferred front three. Lukaku, however, has now scored three goals in three games – the first two as a substitute – and Sanchez is surely a guaranteed starter once he gets back to playing like his old self more regularly.”He’s improving. He’s had his time off over Christmas and now he’s getting his fitness back. He needed 90 minutes but I thought he took his goal well,” Solskjaer said of Lukaku.(With AP inputs)Also Read | Blackpool fan protests on roof of Arsenal team bus before start of matchAlso Read | Chelsea fan banned for 3 years after being found guilty of homophobic chantslast_img
