Alexis Sanchez: Why I left Arsenal for Man Utd. I want to win!

Alexis Sanchez admits he quit Arsenal for Manchester United in order to win trophies.

Despite the Gunners' Cup record, Alexis is confident he can win bigger titles with his new club.

“I think that Manchester United, since I was young - and I'm not just saying this because I'm here, I'm an honest guy and I never lie - I think it's the biggest club in England. That's what I think," Sanchez told Gunners legend Thierry Henry on Sky Sports.

“There are lots of big clubs, and having played for Arsenal, they are also one of them. It's a huge club and I was there.

“But coming here, looking at the badge, I think United have to win everything because it's such a big club. The club crest says it all.

“I came here to win. I left Arsenal because I wanted to develop and learn as player, and get to experience a new club.

Manchester United are a huge club on the global stage. I came here to win everything. Otherwise I wouldn't have come here."
