- Alexis Sanchez deletes video of his new clothing line on Twitter
- The 29-year-old striker was missing in United's loss to Brighton
- Fans verbally attack on social media as he quickly takes it down
Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez promoted his new clothing range on his social media handle only to delete the evidence an hour later after a backlash from fans.
The Chilean international who missed United's 3-2 loss at Brighton on with an unspecified injury, uploaded a video advert and four photos of himself modelling for JJO, but took down both tweets after being accused of 'terrible timing'.
The 29-year-old is the highest paid player in the Premier League and an angry fan scoffed: "We signed a model for 500k a week."
The former Arsenal star launched his 'Alexis' range alongside a female model who was seen in the video peaking at him from behind a curtain as he got dressed, undressed and re-dressed into various outfits.
The advert featured closes-ups of Sanchez's ripped abdominal muscles and ended with the tagline: "More power, more seduction, more attitude, more success, more JJO".
United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho refused to go into detail about the injury which prevented Sanchez facing Brighton at the weekend, describing it only as a 'little problem'.
Mourinho added that Sanchez should not be sidelined for more than a fortnight but could miss next Monday's game against Tottenham.
He said: "I don't know really. Let's wait for the results of the studies, but I don't think it's a big thing. I think it will be one or two weeks maximum."
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that English Premier League giants, Manchester United, suffered a shock 3-2 defeat to lowly-ranked Brighton in a tough Premier League tie played at the Amex Stadium.
The Red Devils were looking to continue their impressive run into the new season when they traveled to the South Coast to face Chris Hughton's men.
