Since leaving Arsenal for Manchester United in January 2018, Alexis Sanchez has scored five goals and registered nine assists in all competitions, out of which two of them were scored this season.
Several players have improved after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December, but that isn’t the case with the Chile international, who has made only one start in the Premier League under the new manager.
After the Red Devils’ defeat to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, the Norwegian was asked as to what he can do to help Sanchez. He said, “I can’t do anything about Alexis Sanchez. When he plays he needs to finds himself because we know there’s a quality player there.”
Journalist Miguel Rico, writing in the back page of Mundo Deportivo, has compared the situation to Philippe Coutinho’s struggles at Barcelona. He claims that there is a belief that Sanchez’s problem is ‘psychological’.
Another Catalan newspaper Sport also claims the South American’s spell at Old Trafford is a ‘real fiasco’, where he has struggled to impress and seen his playing time limited.
Sport claims Sanchez is nowhere close to the player he was at Barcelona, which according to them, was ‘not anything special’ anyway.
What’s Catalan for miaow?
