Arsenal legend Parlour questions Alexis after Man Utd comments

Arsenal legend Ray Parlour is not convinced by Alexis Sanchez claiming he wanted to leave Manchester United after his first training session at the club.

Sanchez signed a mega deal with United and left Arsenal in a swap for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Sanchez left Arsenal in January 2018, never made it at United, and was shipped off to Inter Milan.

But Parlour is not impressed by the attitude of any player who would give up on a big money move so quickly.

He told talkSPORT: "I can't believe you want to leave a club after one training session. How does that work?!

"You've got to give yourself a chance; it's new surroundings and a different way of training than at Arsenal.

"And it shouldn't come down to wages, but he was on £560,000-a-week and he wants to leave straight away?! You've got to work hard."
