Jose Mourinho defends team selection and explains Alexis Sanchez omission

Posted by on September 29th, 2018


Jose Mourinho defended his Manchester United team selection at West Ham and suggested Alexis Sanchez’s omission was a response to public opinion.

The Chile international, who has struggled for form and has yet to find the net this season, travelled with the squad to London but – like Antonio Valencia – was not included in the matchday XI as United slipped to a 3-1defeat at the London Stadium.

Anthony Martial came in for Sanchez but he – along with Paul Pogba – was hauled off with 20 minutes remaining.

Jose Mourinho’s post-match thoughts on his side’s defeat to West Ham was seemingly stopped early by a United press official.

“For how many months people are asking for Martial, Martial, Martial. Forhow many months people are saying, ‘Alexis Sanchez is not playing well enough’,” Mourinho said

“So this week it was time to agree and to say: ‘Let’s give a chance to Martial and let’s leave Alexis out.’

“I left Alexis out, and I think Martial is not a player very focused on his defensive duties so to play him as second striker would be easier for him.”
