Alexis Sanchez's move to Manchester United brings 'pride' to Chile - Rueda

Premier League Jose Mourinho Hails Alexis Sanchez As One Of World's Best Players

The Portuguese was often critical of Mkhitaryan after he moved to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund for £26million in 2016 and Petrosyan claims his player "had a problem" with United's manager.

Mourinho said it was "a great deal for everybody" and confirmed Sanchez will be in the squad for United's FA Cup fourth round tie at Yeovil on Friday.

Asked if United could return to be the successful club they once were under Sir Alex Ferguson following the arrival of Sanchez, Forlan said: "They are doing everything they can to return to that position".

"We have set very high standards - winning three trophies in one season - but those are the standards I expect my teams to aim for", Mourinho added. The chance to play in this historic stadium and to work with Jose Mourinho was something I could not turn down.

"Now we have five attacking players of quality, (Juan) Mata, Rashford, (Romelu) Lukaku, Martial, Alexis and it's fantastic for me and for the team, if the players one day are on the bench and they don't like it, I'm happy with that".

Speaking at his news conference earlier on Thursday - before his new contract was announced - Mourinho hailed the club's recent signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.

"In big clubs, you have big players, competition and responsibilities - you have to try to go to every competition in a serious way".

His hiring was first reported on December 31, before the club interviewed two minority candidates for the position. He led the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl title over Oakland the following season.

'I believe that at this club it's possible to achieve anything.

However, the former Borussia Dortmund playmaker is expected to make his Arsenal bow against Swansea City next Tuesday and he is eager to play alongside World Cup victor Ozil in the north London giants' midfield.

"Could he have performed better?"

"We gave them too much respect, too much distance", he said.

"I've known him for many, many years, I was with him in Italy at Udinese, in Spain, when he was at Barcelona, in England, when he was at Arsenal, so our careers were nearly made in the same countries simultaneously, so I know him very very well". Maybe. But I don't think regrets. "That is why I am also happy for Mkhitaryan", Mourinho added.
