Alexis Sanchez: Jose Mourinho fears Man Utd forward will be out for long time

Alexis Sanchez has scored three goals for Manchester United this season

Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez could be out for a “long time” with a hamstring injury, says manager Jose Mourinho.

The 29-year-old Chilean suffered the injury in training on Thursday.

Sanchez is yet to have a scan to determine the extent of the damage but Mourinho said he was “screaming” in pain.

“It is not a little muscular injury that he will be ready in a week or 10 days,” he added.

Mourinho says it is more severe than the hamstring injury defender Victor Lindelof has suffered.

The Sweden international, who was injured in Saturday’s home draw against Crystal Palace, is expected to be out until the festive period.

On Sanchez, Mourinho added: “It is an aggressive muscular injury. He has not had a scan yet but the player is experienced. He knows what injury is.

“From my experience, the painful scream and the way it happened, it will be a long time.

“For me and Alexis Sanchez, the grade is different to the one that Lindelof has and that was not easy.”

Alexis Sanchez posted this image of his recovery on his Instagram account on Friday
