Chile international Alexis Sanchez has admitted that he has found it hard since his winter move to Manchester United. The 29-year-old joined the Red Devils in a straight-swap agreement, which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to Arsenal, but he has since failed to impress with just three goals in 18 appearances.
Speaking in the aftermath of FA Cup defeat to Chelsea, Sanchez said that he has struggled to adapt to the club’s style of play, he said: “I think that in every game I’ve played in I’ve maybe found it hard to adapt to the style of play and I’ve been getting to know my team-mates. I believe that United really is a very big club on a worldwide scale and even more so in England where it’s the biggest. They always want to win and to be fighting on all fronts and that’s the reason I wanted to come here.”
