‘Curse continues’: These Man Utd fans think Alexis Sanchez is club’s worst ever no.7

Alexis Sanchez is the latest Manchester United star to have failed in the prestigious number 7 jersey.

From the likes of George Best, Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo, we are now becoming more accustomed to the likes of Michael Owen, Antonio Valencia and Sanchez wearing the famous shirt.

Sanchez, who has endured a disastrous 19 months at United scoring just five times, is set to leave the club before the European transfer window shuts on September 2.

As per BBC Sport, the Chilean will join up with former United teammate Romelu Lukaku at Inter Milan on an initial loan spell.

Most United fans thought the Chilean was finally the world-class player who would not collapse under the expectation of the number 7 shirt.

We don’t think the shirt had anything to do with the 30-year-old’s failure however; his confidence was shattered and he was plagued with injuries during his time at Old Trafford.

With the number 7 now vacant, it begs the question who the next player will be to have the responsibility.

Some fans even think they have found the player who should wear the number 7 next.
