Alexis Sanchez left the Huish Park tunnel to a chorus of boos tonight as he stood amongst his new teammates.
The 29-year-old didn’t exactly receive a warm welcome from the Yeovil support, but the former Arsenal winger notched an assist on his debut and looked arguably the best player on the pitch.
Throughout the FA Cup tie, chants of “What a waste of money” and “You’re just a shit Guardiola” could be heard from the stands, but one song in particular brought plenty of laughs on Twitter.
“You dropped a tenner, Alexis” was uttered from the mouth of one Yeovil fan, as told by journalist Henry Winter.
As you can imagine, this sparked plenty of reaction on social media:
The Chilean will earn a hefty amount more than his previous £275k a-week at Arsenal, according to The Telegraph.
A £30 million pound transfer fee was reportedly paid by Manchester United to Arsenal. Alexis will also be paid £14 million a-year after tax in salary. (£27 million pounds before tax)
The best free transfers in football history…
Not to mention a signing-on fee of £20 million, as well as a chunky £10 million payment to Alexis Sanchez’s agent Fernando Felicevich.
It works out at around £180 million.
Thoughts on Sanchez’s debut this evening? Do you think he will flourish under Jose Mourinho?
