Solskjaer reveals Alexis Sanchez is ‘chomping at the bit’ to make Manchester United comeback

Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Alexis Sanchez can’t wait to get back playing.

The Chilean hasn’t featured for Manchester United since the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on November 24th after suffering a hamstring injury and went back to his homeland for his recuperation.

Sanchez has had a torrid 12 months since swapping Arsenal for Manchester United last January, where he has scored just four goals and has been widely criticised for his disappointing displays for the Red Devils.

However, he returned to Manchester last week – just days after the sacking of Jose Mourinho – where he has continued his recovery, and caretaker boss Solskjaer has revealed that the United number 7 can’t wait to get back into action, and should return in Wednesday’s game against Newcastle.

“Alexis is chomping at the bit and wanted to be involved against Bournemouth, but it was too early for him,” Solskjaer said in his pre-match press conference.

“He will be involved at Newcastle, though, and he is looking forward to it. He has had some great training sessions over the last few days and scored quite a few nice goals, so that is encouraging.”
