He’s using injuries as an excuse…
Alexis Sanchez has issued an apology to Manchester United fans after another disappointing season at Old Trafford.
He’s never got going since joining United but his wages won’t be matched elsewhere, so the club could have a dilemma on its hands.
It will be disappointing if Sanchez is still playing for United next season.
A lot more was expected of the Chilean when he joined the club in a swap deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan go the other way, to Arsenal.
He pockets half a million pounds every week and the best we get is some pictures of his two dogs (Atom & Humber) on Instagram…
Well, Sanchez took the Instagram again on Sunday night without a dog in sight. This time he fronted the criticism he has been receiving since becoming a United player.
Accepting that his performances have been unacceptable, Sanchez attributed his poor form to injuries!
“It was a very tough season… the fan are the ones who deserve an apology as they always support you no matter what happens,” Sanchez said.
“Personally, I didn’t perform as much as I was expecting because of unpredictable injuries. I was always a professional in all aspects.
“I apologise to the fans for not being able to achieve our goals, nevertheless we are Manchester United!
“Players and Staff and questioning if we were doing the right thing and if we were giving our best for this football shirt… I’m certain that Manchester United one day will return to be the club, as it was in the old days with Mr. Alex Ferguson.”

Fue una temporada muy complicada, pero ellos los fans, son los únicos que se merecen unas disculpas, te apoyan siempre a pesar de todo por este club. En lo personal, no jugué todo lo que esperaba, me lesioné de cosas que nunca me habían pasado. Hay cosas internas que la gente y periodistas hablan sin saber. Siempre fui profesional en todo sentido, ofrezco disculpas a los fans 🙏🏽 por no estar peleando cosas importantes, siendo que somos el Manchester United. Jugadores y Staff saquemos conclusión, si hicimos lo correcto y entregamos lo mejor de cada uno por esta camiseta… Estoy seguro que el Manchester United, volverá a ser el club, que algún día fue, con el señor Alex Ferguson. ⬇️ 🙏🏽 It was a very tough season…the fan are the ones who deserve an apology as they always support you no matter what happens. Personally, I didn’t perform as much as I was expecting because of unpredictable injuries. Press and people were speculating of things that were not even true. I was always a professional in all aspects. I apologise to the fans 🙏 for not be able to achieve our goals,Nevertheless we are Manchester United!

Calling a spade a spade, Sanchez looks finished as a player. He doesn’t seem cut out for the top level anymore.
That would suggest José Mourinho signed a dud in January of 2018.
However, when Sanchez says he was professional in all aspects, does he think Mourinho would agree?
Neil Custis from The Sun stated back in December that Sanchez sent a message to a WhatsApp group revelling in Mourinho’s sacking while revealing he’d won a bet worth £20k with Marcos Rojo.
How professional of him to place on bet on his manager getting sacked…
