Chilean Coach: I Told Sanchez To Reject Chelsea & United
Chile coach Claudio Borghi is delighted Alexis Sanchez is now a Barcelona player, after telling him to reject other offers.
Borghi is close to the former Udinese winger and encouraged the 22-year old to reject offers from other clubs and sign for the Catalan giants. Manchester United and Chelsea had both wanted the promising South American but Sanchez opted for a move to La Liga.
“Alexis is still a child, a boy of humble origins who is poised to be the best footballer in the world: I have a bet in this regard,” smiled Borghi.
“His transfer was a soap opera.
“There was a time when there were other options, but I said go to Barcelona, do not hesitate. I know he can develop there.”
