Alexis Sanchez ‘didn’t know’ why he wasn’t selected at Man Utd

Alexis Sanchez has revealed he has no regrets about joining Manchester United, but had to leave the club due to a lack of playing time.

The Chilean has joined Romelu Lukaku at Inter Milan, signing a one-year loan deal at the Serie A club.

As reported by Sky Sports, there is no buy option in the Sanchez deal as there is a hope he can rediscover his form and have a successful loan spell to attract other buyers.

Sanchez insists he is glad he made the move to Old Trafford, despite a disastrous nineteen month spell.

“I’m very happy I went to Manchester United,” he told BBC Sport.

“I’ve always said that. It’s the club that has won the most in England. When I went to Arsenal it was fantastic – I was happy there – but United were growing at the time, they were buying players to win something. I wanted to join them and win everything. I don’t regret going there.”

“I’ve always said to my friends I want to play,” Sánchez said. “If they [United] would let me play I’ll do my best. Sometimes I’d play 60 minutes then I wouldn’t play the next game and I didn’t know why,” he added.

In truth, it’s clear to see why the 30-year-old was not consistently selected after scoring just five times in 45 appearances at the club.

Sanchez had come with high hopes of a player that could finally justify being given the no.7 jersey, but other than perhaps a lack of confidence, his performances in a Red shirt have been unfathomably poor.

The 30-year-old will be hoping to resurrect his career at Inter, where he has now been handed the n0.7 shirt after the exit of Maruo Icardi to Paris Saint-Germain.
