Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez has said some serious words regarding his own form in the recent weeks, seven weeks after his move from Arsenal.
United signed Chilean Alexis Sanchez with some monumental hopes but so far it hasn’t been materialized as the 29 year old has been mediocre at best in his past few appearances. His dismal displays led controversies which led to his omission from United’s starting eleven against Brighton in the FA Cup.
Alexis Sanchez has so far scored a solitary goal for the Red Devils and hasn’t yet emulated the breathtaking form he displayed at the Emirates. Although his class and quality can’t be questioned, but the player’s mentality and approach to the game has already been questioned from various sectors with a claim that he is already unhappy at his new home.
The former Arsenal man was reported to be not settling well with his new teammates and eats alone in the canteen.
It has been more of a down story for Alexis at United
But the Chilean, currently with his National team has spoken about his recent struggle at the Old Trafford.
“As I am self-demanding, I expected something better,” the Manchester United player said.
“After my arrival at United, it was hard to change everything very quickly. I even hesitated to come here[to Sweden, with National team],” he added.
“I had asked permission to miss these games, but then I thought better and spoke with Claudio [Bravo] and told him that we should all be united.”

Chile, unlike their opponents Sweden, won’t be in the World Cup in Russia as they were bowed out of the World Cup in the final round of the Qualifiers. He also shrugged off the claims about Bravo’s retirement plans and said that nobody is angry with Claudio Bravo and they remember his contributions to the country. Incidentally, Claudio Bravo was marked as the culprit for Chile’s omission from the World Cup.
