Manchester City legend Micah Richards has admitted he thought Alexis Sanchez leaving Arsenal for Manchester United was going to be a great move but Sanchez ended up becoming a ‘laughing stock.’

Sanchez joined Manchester United from Arsenal in 2018 but he managed just 3 league goals in 32 league appearances before leaving for Inter Milan.

“He became a laughing stock at Manchester United,” Richards said on the BBC’s Top 10 podcast.

“At Arsenal he was quality and he worked hard. He had skill and creativity. He was a go-to man.

“It was sad when he went to United because I thought it was going to be a great move for him.”

Match of the Day host Gary Lineker added: “He was such a good player for Arsenal.

“Everyone thought he was going to Manchester City then no, Manchester United sneaked in and nicked him. But it didn’t really work.

“He was a great player but it didn’t quite happen for him. It is weird how you can be so good at one club, but it not happen at another.”
