Alexis Sanchez has praised Jose Mourinho and admitted that the Manchester United manager gets “very angry” when the Red Devils lose games.

The Chile international has been adapting to life at Old Trafford following his move to the club from Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Sanchez joined Manchester United as part of the same deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan leave Old Trafford and move to the north London side.

The 29-year-old was the star of the show on Saturday as he was voted as the man of the match during Manchester United’s 2-1 FA Cup semi-final win over Tottenham at Wembley.

Sanchez has been getting used to life at Old Trafford and it has been something of a slow start for him at his new club.

He has scored two goals and made three assists in nine Premier League games so far this season.

And the Chilean has opened up about life under Mourinho since having signed for the Red Devils at the turn of the year.

Sanchez is quoted as saying by Goal after Saturday’s victory: “He is a coach that demands a lot, and when we lose he gets very angry.

“We need those kind of demands to get the best out of us. He asks me to play a free role, to enjoy myself, to attack, defend, to do everything!”

The Chilean is set to line up against his former club next weekend when Manchester United host Arsenal in the Premier League at Old Trafford.
