Forward Alexis Sanchez said on Tuesday that he did not get enough chance to succeed at Manchester United. Sanchez, who joined Man Utd, made a thirty-one appearance after nineteen months at Old Trafford.
The 30-year-old said that he was very happy at Manchester United, but he left the Red Devils because he would like to get enough playing time.
“If they 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,” the international player told BBC.
The former Barcelona and Arsenal forward guided his national team to finish fourth at the 2019 Copa America, held in Brazil where he netted twice.
The Chilean’s high moments was in Arsenal as he joined the Gunners in July 2014 from Barcelona for £30m.
Sanchez netted 60 goals on 166 occasions with the Gunners, as well as, he was nominated for the Professional Footballers’ Association Players’ Players of the Year award in 2017. He left Arsenal January 2018, moving to the Old Trafford, where he scored only five goals.
The Chilean moved to Inter Milan on a season-long loan deal in August. Inter will pay around £4.5m of Sanchez’s salary, but will not have an option to buy the Chilean international as part of the deal
