Alexis Sanchez uses Paul Pogba to aim dig at Jose Mourinho

Manchester United have won 10 out of 11 matches under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who came to replace sacked Jose Mourinho.

Red Devils’ last win came on Saturday when they defeated Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage.

Paul Pogba played a starring role at Old Trafford after Mourinho’s sacking by scoring seven goals and producing a man of the match display as United eased to victory against Fulham.

Alexis Sanchez who joined Manchester United a year ago from Arsenal was also often left on the bench in Mourinho’s era. The Chilean used a chance to take a thinly-veiled dig at his former boss when discussing Pogba’s renaissance under Solskjaer.

“Paul Pogba is still young, but he is a great player, who has to be trusted in the team,” said Sanchez, speaking to the Mirror.

“Now I see him far more involved in the team and he’s playing well.”

He also added: “There’s a great atmosphere at the club.”

Regarding whether there has been a change in morale in the dressing room since Mourinho’s exit, Sanchez remained coy, stating: “About what happens inside the locker room, I never speak.

“People keep saying the way things have changed is like a ­miracle, but I do not believe in miracles.

“I only believe in work and more work – and that’s what we’ve done.”
