Sanchez admits he is struggling to adapt to Man Utd’s ‘style of play’

Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez has admitted that that he is struggling to settle into life at Old Trafford after his high profile transfer in January.

The Chilean made a very well publicised move from Arsenal to Manchester United in the January transfer window, and despite having already done well in the Premier League with the Gunners, he has struggled to make an impact for the Red Devils.

While he has shown glimpses of brilliance in the famous red shirt, the majority of his performances for United have been vastly underwhelming, with the weekends FA Cup final against Chelsea being a particular disappointment.

Speaking after the game, the United number seven admitted that he has struggled to adapt to life at Manchester United:

“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.”

While Sanchez knows he needs to improve his own performances,he has also called upon his new teammates to improve also:

“I believe we need to improve in all aspects.

“We need to be focused and concentrated in the big games and the same in the so-called lesser games too.

“That’s what the great sides do and I think United are a great side, so that’s what we need to do.

“Manchester United is a massive club that always aspires to win big trophies and that is what I’m trying to make happen.

“I want to try and keep improving so we can see the club winning trophies.”

United achieved their best season since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in terms of both points and league position, but still finished a whopping 19 points behind champions Manchester City.

While they beat all of the top six over the course of the season, they also lost to all three of the promoted clubs and dropped points against two of the sides that were relegated.
