Mourinho asked if he made mistake dropping Sanchez – blames Man Utd fans

Jose Mourinho refused to comment on whether he thought he made a mistake in dropping Alexis Sanchez against West Ham – but claims the Manchester United fans got what they wanted.

The Red Devils boss left the forward out of his matchday squad on Saturday, meaning he was unable to bring him on from the bench against the Hammers.

He instead started Anthony Martial in his place, but the Frenchman failed to have any impact on the match as United were well beaten by the home side.

Mourinho was asked after the match whether, in hindsight, he might have made a mistake in dropping the Chilean against West Ham.

He refused to give a direction answer, but suggested it wasn’t his mistake to make, it was the fans who wanted to see Sanchez dropped.

"Look, for many months people have been asking for Martial, Martial, Martial,’ said Mourinho on BT Sport.

"For many months people have been saying that Alexis Sanchez has not being playing well enough.

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