Sevilla boss jokes over killing Sanchez in order to stop him”

On the eve of his side's home leg of their UEFA Champions League draw against Manchester United, Montella gave a very "creative" or "interesting" response to the question of how to stop Alexis Sanchez?

"How do we stop him?"

This is the first time United have reached the knockout stages of the competition since 2014, while Sevilla are yet to reach the quarter-finals, having lost to Leicester last season.

Sanchez ended up moving to Manchester United as part of the same deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan to head to Arsenal as the Gunners managed to convince the 29-year-old to move to London.

Though Paul Pogba missed the Huddersfield clash due to illness, he is set to play against Sevilla after he was pictured training with the first team in Spain.

'I think he's a wonderful player, he's so talented. his pace, the way he finishes, he can be what he wants to be this boy.

According to English football outlet Telegraph Football, Montella heaped huge praise for Sanchez saying, "He's a fantastic player, I saw him play in Italy". With Liverpool and Manchester City all but qualified and Tottenham and Chelsea also impressing, United will be looking to follow in the footsteps of their domestic rivals by displaying good European form - and Montella admitted he is looking forward to the prospect of potentially outwitting Mourinho over the two legs.

"Maybe we can kill him or knock him down or something".

"Now it looks like all the good players they have to play free", he said.

"I am really excited by this match".

"It's a challenge to beat Mourinho, but it is a pleasure to prepare for this type of game. I hope he doesn't play!" He's a formidable opponent who commands the utmost respect of Sevilla manager Vincenzo Montella.
