Alexis Sanchez has lifted the lid on his CHILDHOOD love for Manchester United which could make getting rid of him quite tricky.
After joining United from Arsenal in a high-profile transfer a year ago, Sanchez has struggled to show any kind of consistency and he has failed to live up to THE hype.
Having fallen down the pecking order, Sanchez’s long-term prospects at Old Trafford look bleak.
United’s fortunes have significantly improved since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho and the Norwegian enjoyed an 11-game unbeaten run in all competitions before A HOME defeat to PSG in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against Paris Saint-Germain.
Solskjaer had likened Sanchez to “ketchup stuck in a bottle” last month, insisting only the Chilean can turn his Red Devils career around.
Although Sanchez has been beset by injuries this term and after being taken off with a suspected knee problem in the 3-2 win over Southampton earlier this month, he has been a peripheral figure.
And the player has revealed why he is so determined to succeed at United despite his problems to date.
The forward told Inside United: “I want to keep showing my love for football. I know what I can do. I have belief in my ability.
“United are such an important club, not only in England but on a global level, and I would love to help bring a trophy to the supporters.
