Arsenal fans were happy to see their former star player Alexis Sanchez substituted by Mourinho on Wednesday night due to a disappointing performance from the Chilean for Manchester United in the Champions League.
The striker has found it difficult to hit the ground running at Old Trafford since making his switch to the theatre of Dreams in January.
He has managed just a single goal since his debut for the Red Devils and he didn’t look like scoring when his side took on the La Liga side Sevilla who dominated play from start to finish in the first leg of the last 16 tie.
The proven goalscorer failed to have a shot on target as he seems he played out of his familiar position before being withdrawn from the game by the Portuguese manager in the second half.
Marcus Rashford was introduced 17 minutes to the end of the match in place of Sanchez and the youngster didn’t disappoint as he brought sparks into United’s lifeless attack at the closing stages of the game.
On social media, The Gunners fans unanimously showed their happiness seeing their former player struggling to fit into Mourinho’s style of play.
A fan on Twitter admitted that selling Sanchez made them a better team.
Another person suggested that Arsenal are wise enough to let go of the Chilean striker as they knew he pass his prime.
