Sanchez slams 'false' claims of Mourinho sack bet

Sanchez slams 'false' claims of Mourinho sack bet

Keane also gave his backing to his old team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, after he was confirmed as United's interim manager until the end of this season, as he backed the new boss to get the best out of United's club record signing Paul Pogba.

Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez has denied reports that he made a £20,000 bet with team mate Marcos Rojo on Jose Mourinho's sacking from Manchester United.

Solskjaer, who will be at the Old Trafford helm for the remainder of the season, told MUTV in his first interview: "It's great".

Mourinho was sacked on Tuesday after two and a half seasons with United and the club sitting in sixth in the table, 11 points back of the final Champions League place. I can stand player who are quick to hide behind their agents, their social media, their friends in the media. These are quality players and it's easy to get them to express themselves. "My job now is to do as well as I can and move the club forward as well as I can".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mike Phelan have been pictured in good spirits at Carrington ahead of Manchester United's trip to Cardiff City on Saturday.

"One of the reasons the decision has been taken by Manchester United is that players were considering their futures", Horncastle said. I get my managerial style from him.

Mourinho firing doesn't fix malaise at Man United
So United knew just what it was getting when it gave the game's most volatile character a route back into the dugout in 2016. The club is 19 pints behind Premier League leaders Liverpool, who they lost to (1-3) last weekend.

"For some of them to down tools, shame on some of those players".

"The last game he had as a manager [ended] 5-5, that was nearly the ideal end for him as a manager and I want the players to be similar".

Solskjaer, 45, made more than 360 appearances in 11 years for United and scored a dramatic Champions League victor in 1999 to seal a historic treble. I am one of them.

Solskjaer's place in United's folklore means he is likely to receive a rapturous welcome when they play their next home match against Huddersfield Town on Dec 26.

Asked if he had been able to run the rule over Cardiff during what he admitted had been a "whirlwind" few days, he said: "Of course, I have watched the Premier League, I have seen all the teams, so I have got a little bit of a view on them". I like to speak to people, I like to engage with people. "It's about managing players, staff and it's about getting the best out of everyone", he said.

"No longer is there that sense of Manchester United being a barren land where you would not dream of sending your best player there". And with such a packed schedule in the coming weeks, we could very well expect a mixed bag on names on the Norwegian's first game with Manchester United.
