Alexis Sanchez has finally spoken about his difficult start to life as a Manchester United player.
The 29-year-old attacker was involved in the most high profile deal of the January transfer window when he swapped the Emirates for Old Trafford with Armenia international Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving in the other direction.
Sanchez has looked a shadow of the player that was so impressive during his three seasons with Arsenal and has scored just one goal in ten appearances for his new club.
The Chile international is currently in Sweden on international duty. Where he has opened up about how difficult he has found it adapting to his new club, and the fact that his current performances are below the levels he expects from himself.
“Seeing as I demand a lot of myself, I expected something better,”
“After my arrival at United, it was hard to change everything very quickly. I even hesitated to come here [to Sweden, with the national team].
“I had asked permission to miss these games and stay in England, but then I thought better and spoke with Claudio [Bravo] and told him that we should all be united.”
“The change of club was something that was very abrupt – it was the first time I’ve changed clubs in January – but many things have happened in my life that are difficult.”
