Since he was officially unveiled as a Manchester United player on Monday, many fans and supporters have been wondering which position their new man will play at Old Trafford.
However, manager Jose Mourinho has sent a message across about the Chilean, saying the former Barcelona player can play effectively in four different positions.
After beating Manchester City to the player’s signature, the Portuguese tactician said he plans to play Sanchez in a number of roles in his starting XI.
The 29-year-old trained with his team-mates for the first time on Tuesday and is in contention to play his first game in a Man United shirt on Friday at Yeovil Town.
While the South American star played often on the left wing position at Arsenal, his new manager Jose Mourinho has refused to state a particular spot, but he said the player can do well in four different roles.
According to Mourinho, he had seen Sanchez play on the left wing, on the right wing, as a striker and also behind the striker – hailing the versatility of the Chilean.
Manchester United are still 12 points behind Manchester City in the premier league, and Jose will hope Alexis can give his side the needed boost to overtake the sky blue club before the end of this season.
