Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed Alexis Sanchez will be sidelined for a “long time” due to a hamstring injury he got in training on Thursday.
The former Gunner, who has struggled to replicate the form he had at the Emirates since joining in January, has sustained an 'aggressive muscular injury', according to Mourinho.
“No scans yet but the player is experienced, the player knows what the injury is and also from the top of my experience, the painful scream and the way the injury happened, I know that it is going to be for a long time," Mourinho said as the Mirror reported.
“It is not a little muscular injury that in one week or ten days, the player is ready.
“For me and also Alexis, the feeling is before the scans that the grade is different than the [Victor] Lindelof one and the Lindelof one was not an easy one, so I think Alexis has what I used to call an aggressive muscular injury.”
