Man Utd legend wants Alexis Sanchez to be dropped

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has demanded Alexis Sanchez be dropped after yet another disappointing performance.

Sanchez was involved in his 10th game in a United shirt during the dismal 2-1 defeat to Sevilla on Tuesday night, but was once again ineffective as Jose Mourinho struggles to find a way to get the best out of the Chilean.

During his 10 games, he has scored just one goal, and that came from a rebound having initially missed a penalty.

Against Sevilla, he struggled to make an impact on the game and constantly gave the ball away, as Mourinho’s side managed just four shots on target over the two legs of the tie.

Speaking at half time in the second leg, Scholes singled out Sanchez for criticism.

“We found it strange after Saturday, (the win against Liverpool). He (Rashford) played up the right side to bring Sanchez into his best position,” Scholes told BT Sport.

“I think Marcus’ best position is on the left side. He (Sanchez) gave the ball away so many times. Surely your manager has to say, you’ve had 10 games now, the last four or five games he’s not been good.

“I think he has to choose his best front three and be brave enough to leave one out. At the minute Sanchez has to be left out.”
