Sevilla plan to 'tie up' Man Utd's Alexis Sanchez, jokes Vincenzo Montella

Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella suggested the best way for his team to stop Manchester United causing his side havoc in Wednesday's Champions League last-16 first leg is to tie up Alexis Sanchez with rope.

The match will likely see Sanchez make his first appearance in the competition for United following his January move from Arsenal, and he appears to have settled in quickly.

He hit back at rumours of a rift between the pair last week before the £89million club-record signing pulled out of the FA Cup win at Huddersfield with a mystery illness.

'I remember Sanchez really well from his time in Italy.

Montella's European experience includes his Fiorentina side being knocked out of the Europa League semi-finals by Sevilla in 2015, while his only journey in the Champions League was ended at the last-16 stage by Shakhtar Donetsk in 2011 while in charge of AS Roma. "He has improved a lot his style in his career and he's a really good player in terms of the transitions and finding spaces, and he has a really good speed in attack".

Sevilla have failed to reach the last eight in three attempts, falling to Fenerbahce on penalties in 2008, CSKA Moscow in 2010 and Leicester City last season.

He said: "Maybe we could kill him or knock him down or something!".

Montella admits he has huge respect for Mourinho and has been reading books about someone he reckons is a "pioneer" in the game. "More than 100 I think, but we will be ready to play this match". "I hope he doesn't play".

"I'm very excited to be facing Mourinho, he was a pioneer in football tactics and I studied him a lot when I was starting out as a coach", the Italian added.

"I am really happy with the performance of my team", the former AC Milan boss said.
