Alexis Sanchez announces breakup in Instagram video

Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez announces his breakup with his girlfriend in an Instagram video.

Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez has announced his split from girlfriend Mayte Rodriguez with a video on Instagram.

The 15-second video shows pictures of the couple as the Sia track 'Helium' plays, and ends with a message from Sanchez confirming their breakup.

"I wish you the best of the world, it was beautiful to have met you and to share nice moments with you, but we decided that everyone should follow their own path to seek our dreams," it reads.

"I do not usually do this, but I ask respect from those who speak without knowing to hurt, because behind everything there are family and children."


Sanchez, who is said to have been dating Rodriguez for several years, was forced to defend the actress last year after angry Chile fans accused her of being partly responsible for their country's failure to qualify for the World Cup.
