Since José Mourinho revealed that Alexis Sanchez is ruled out of Manchester United’s Champions League clash against Juventus, it didn’t take long for the Chilean media to start reacting to it.

Most of the local outlets are wondering about the reason for the player’s absence, since it was not explained by the Old Trafford boss.

But La Tercera goes further than that, recalling how the relationship between player and manager has reached a ‘critical moment’.

The outlet recalls the many compliments José Mourinho has made to Sanchez during his first months at Manchester United, and how it has turned into ‘indifference’ from the boss lately.

They now highlight his ‘dry’ answer when questioned about Alexis’ absence in this week’s game, and say he hasn’t made it clear if he’s out for physical or football reasons.

La Tercera calls their story ‘from love to forgetfulness’, which we must admit is a pretty good name for a love movie set in New York.

Meanwhile, journalist Christian Martins claims to know why Sanchez is ruled out. He claims the player returned from the international break with a thigh injury, and in a test today it was confirmed that he can’t feature in the next game.
