Thierry Henry: I'm a big fan of Mkhitaryan

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

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince has insisted that the biggest players in the world would still prefer to move to Old Trafford rather than join Manchester City.

Having finalised his move to United, he's in line to make his debut in their fourth-round FA Cup tie at Yeovil on Friday evening.

Do you think Sanchez made the right decision in choosing United over City?

"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 said as the news was announced on his club's official website.

"I would like to say a big thank you to the owners and to (executive vice-chairman) Mr (Ed) Woodward for the recognition of my hard work and dedication".

Mourinho was initially handed a three-year deal when he took over from Louis van Gaal and has now signed on for a further 12 months at least.

The Gunners have had a decent start to the post-Alexis Sanchez era, beating Crystal Palace 4-1 after a frenzy of goals in a 20 minute period and now beating Antonio Conte's Chelsea 2-1 in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg.

Elton just sat down with Anderson Cooper to announce a world tour, saying it'll span over the course of the next 3 years. One of his biggest scares came previous year with hospitalization from a bacterial infection contracted in South America.

"I would rather encourage a club to push more on the quality of our youth work, which we are doing, than go into a way where it's only about millions and not so much about values".

Mourinho did express some regret that Mkhitaryan failed to live up to expectations, though he has no doubt Arsenal have got themselves a capable player.

"Why? Because he has one and half years in England and one and a half years in the English Premier League (EPL)".

"Could he have performed better for us?"

Diego Forlan, one of 15 South Americans to have played for the Red Devils, is excited for Sanchez. The Portuguese also said that he has more attacking players option now. "We are very happy with this transfer from Manchester United. Maybe, but he did important things for us and I think there's a good feeling for everyone".

Other than Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Matt Busby, who spent almost 27 and 24 years in charge respectively, United's longest serving post-war manager is Ron Atkinson, who was manager for five years and five months before making way for Ferguson in October 1986.
