Manchester UTD have announced that they will raffle Alexis Sánchez this summer, with all proceeds going to animal charity ‘The Donkey Sanctuary’. The Chilean spent last season on loan with Inter Milan, who have confirmed that they will enter the raffle.
“It’s for a good cause ,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Soccer on Sunday. “£3 a ticket, or £10 for a line of 5. Obviously Alexis is top prize, but there’s also a Philips deep fat fryer and a Dyson vacuum cleaner up for grabs. So there’s something for everyone, whether you’re a football club or a sexy housewife.”
“Did I say sexy?” added the Norwegian. “Not sure where that came from. Herself indoors will go mental if she reads this. Probably shouldn’t be saying ‘herself indoors’ either, these days. Or ‘housewife’. I feel like I’m digging a hole for myself here.”
“A book of tickets if you don’t print any of this,” said Solskjaer. “You could win yourself a nice little Alexis Sánchez?”
