"It Has Been A Traumatic, Very Tortuous Year" But Chile Boss Backs Alexis Sanchez To Bounce Back

"It Has Been A Traumatic, Very Tortuous Year" But Chile Boss Backs Alexis Sanchez To Bounce Back

Alexis Sanchez will come back from a 'traumatic' year and the forward has more to show 'at the top level,' according to his national team manager.

The Chile forward was considered one the best forwards in the world not that long ago but his form since leaving Arsenal for Manchester United, and slightly before that, had made him into a near laughing stock.

Sanchez moved on loan to Inter for this season but injury has halted any progress to get back to his best, however Chile manager Reinaldo Rueda thinks that the former Barcelona forward will get back to his best after a 'tortuous' time.

"It has been a traumatic, very tortuous year for him. Ever since his departure from Arsenal and his first year at Manchester United," Rueda told Spanish outlet SPORT.

"He came to the Copa America in Brazil and then had that bad luck with the injury in the friendly against Colombia in Alicante. That loan to Inter was almost thwarted and when he recovered the pandemic came.

"I expect all this to pass quickly because he's a great professional, has a great attitude in training and will maintain a high standing for any club that gives him a chance.

"He's got a lot of football yet to show at the top level."

Alexis Sanchez Explains The Reason He Didn't Like Jose Mourinho

He scored just two goals in 12 league games before the end of the season and the following season scored only once in 20 games in the Premier League.

With his huge wages the club weren't able to sell him last summer but he did move to Italy on loan to join Inter.

Whilst the Nerazzurri had an excellent first part of the season and led Serie A for sometime from rivals Juventus, before falling behind the Old Lady and Lazio in recent times, Sanchez wasn't able to contribute much.

The 31-year-old has suffered a couple of injuries and only started two games in the league this season, with seven appearances coming off the bench.

With just one goal in all competitions this season it's unlikely that Antonio Conte's side will try and make his move permanent whenever the transfer window opens.

Can Sanchez rediscover his form for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team or will he go elsewhere? Let us know in the comments.
