Alexis Sanchez Had An Absolute 'Disasterclass' After Coming On Against Paris Saint-Germain

Alexis Sanchez Had An Absolute 'Disasterclass' After Coming On Against Paris Saint-Germain

Alexis Sanchez had a chance to really stake a claim for a first-team spot this evening when Jesse Lingard pulled up just before half-time in the Champions League round of 16 first leg clash against paris Saint-Germain.

The Chilean came on at the very end of the first half and spent the next 15 minutes warming up during the interval.

But Sanchez failed to produce anything of note and his sad decline as a football continued. Embarrassingly, he did not have a single shot, did not complete any dribbles, failed to deliver a cross nor did he conjure up any key passes in 45 minutes on the pitch.

Folks, that is what you call a 'disasterclass'. Even though they signed him on a free, the fact that he's been poor so when he's on mega-bucks means there's genuinely a case for him being one of the worst signings in Premier League history.

Previously one of the very best in the league, the 30-year old has just five goals in 37 appearances for United.

And while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been able to reinvigorate a number of United's players, Sanchez is the one big exception.

"I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez," the Norwegian said after suffering his first defeat as United boss, as per the Manchester Evening News.

"When he plays he needs to find himself because we know there's a quality player there."

Injuries to Lingard and Anthony Martial could mean Sanchez is afforded a start away at Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round tie on Monday but there's a growing feeling that he will be one of the first to be offloaded when the summer transfer window rolls around.
