Man United fans annoyed at Alexis Sanchez fashion promo after Brighton embarrassment

Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez chose Monday to launch his new fashion line to the wider public by way of a shirtless, smouldering promo video that he shared on social media.

Given that it came just one day after United's embarrassing 3-2 defeat against Brighton, many fans complained about the Chilean's questionable sense of timing.

Sanchez didn't feature in the loss at the AMEX due to an unspecified injury, but that didn't stop dissenting supporters from sarcastically bemoaning the player's lack of tact.

Undaunted by the reaction, Sanchez followed up by posting another batch of glossy images of himself dressed up to the nines in the new "Alexis for JJO" menswear range.

Speaking before kick-off, United boss Jose Mourinho confirmed that the 29-year-old was missing the Brighton match with "a little problem."

For Sanchez's sake, we hope it wasn't related to his new side venture as a catalogue model.
