Alexis Sanchez Unhappy With His Manchester United Teammates For Collapsing Against PSG

Alexis Sanchez Unhappy With His Manchester United Teammates For Collapsing Against PSG

Alexis Sanchez had no impact whatsoever in Manchester United's Champions League round of 16 first leg defeat to Paris Saint-Germain, but it hasn't stopped him digging out his own teammates.

The Chilean replaced Jesse Lingard at the very end of the first half at Old Trafford 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 footballer 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.

Yet still, Sanchez says he looked at his teammates after Presnel Kimpembe opened the scoring and noticed a lack of belief that they could get back in the game.

"'When they scored that first goal, I looked at them [team-mates] and I thought, no, something's not right," he told the BBC.

"I looked in their eyes and I thought, there isn't that feeling there [of coming back], I'm not getting it."

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 the Chilean himself is aware that he needs to be doing a lot more.

"'I'm a player that, if I'm not in contact with the ball, I lose that spark, and sometimes I want to play in every game," he added.

"You're in, you're out, and I'm used to playing. It's not an excuse because if I go on for 10, 20 minutes, I have to perform because that's what I'm here for, to make a difference.

"I would like to have brought more joy to the club. Yes, it worries me because I believe in my abilities as a player, I want to show it."
