Alexis Sanchez Admits To Struggling Under Jose Mourinho At Manchester United

Alexis Sanchez admitted his start to life at Manchester United has been a struggle.

The Chilean was roundly criticised after disappointing during Saturday’s FA Cup final defeat by Chelsea.

And Sanchez revealed he has not immediately taken to Jose Mourinho’s style of play.

‘I think that in every game I’ve played in I’ve maybe found it hard to adapt to the style of play and I’ve been getting to know my team-mates,’ Sanchez said.

‘I believe that United really is a very big club on a worldwide scale and even more so in England where it’s the biggest. They always want to win and to be fighting on all fronts and that’s the reason I wanted to come here.’

United finished the campaign without any silverware and Sanchez’s role in that has come under question.

Sanchez has managed to score just three goals since a switch from Arsenal in January.

Nemanja Matic called on United’s board to back Mourinho in the transfer market this summer, with another overhaul expected at Old Trafford.

His team-mates are in agreement and Sanchez believes things have to change drastically in the coming months.

‘I also had some great players alongside me at Barcelona, some highly experienced guys who had great quality,’ he added.

‘I think that United are not too dissimilar as a club to them in their size and stature. However, we still have areas where we can improve, and we can do this day-to-day and a game-to-game basis. I believe we need to improve in all aspects.’
