Vincenzo Montella wants Sevilla ‘to tie up Alexis Sanchez with rope’ ahead of his side’s Champions League clash with Manchester United.
The former Arsenal forward is set to start for United, whom he joined last month, in Andalucia while Montella also called the Chilean’s teammate Paul Pogba as a ‘complete player’.
“I remember Alexis really well from his stay in Italy,” Montella told reporters, as cited by the BBC.
“He has improved his style a lot during his career and I think he can be a really good player in transition. I think they have really good speed in attack.
“Well, maybe we can lock him up with a padlock or tie him up with rope!
“Paul Pogba? He is a complete player, and I must admit that I hope he doesn't play against us.
“I'm very excited to be facing Mourinho, he was a pioneer in football tactics and I studied him a lot when I was starting out as a coach.”
