Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez was forced to delete several photos and a video promoting a new clothing line after fans criticised him over the timing following United’s embarrassing defeat at Brighton on Sunday.
The Chilean star was unavailable for the 3-2 loss at the Amex Stadium due to an unspecified injury.
But with fans still fuming about the poor performance, Sanchez thought that Monday was a good time to launch his new fashion brand JJO.
The former Arsenal star posted a video ad and four pictures of himself modelling the clothes on social media.

Only to take them down shortly afterwards following a backlash from disappointed Red Devils supporters.
Seriously? Terrible timing.

Do the supporters have a right to be upset?
