Sanchez is one of the only United players to have not kicked on since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as manager
Alexis Sanchez has been branded a ‘disgrace’ by Manchester United legend Paul Ince following another shocking performance from the forward.
Sanchez, the Chile international, was introduced as a substitute in Tuesday’s defeat by PSG, but failed to do anything of note during his 45 minutes on the pitch.
He appears to have lost all his confidence on the ball, and it’s now expected he will lose possession as soon as he gains it – and this expectation usually rings true.
Sanchez is the only United player to have not burst into life since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as the club’s manager on an interim basis, with the Chile star failing to replicate the likes of Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford – three players currently performing at an elite level.
And Sanchez’s performances are so bad they are actually a ‘disgrace’, according to Old Trafford icon Ince.
“The way Alexis Sanchez is playing at the moment is nothing short of a disgrace,” Ince told Paddypower. “His performances are a joke for the wage he gets.
“I wouldn’t begrudge his high wage, either, if I thought that he was truly putting his all in and playing well, but when you give someone that kind of money you expect a lot more.
“The fans deserve better, Ole deserves better, and so do the rest of his team.
“Maybe he has the hump because he’s not in the starting XI, but that’s hardly a surprise! He’s been hopeless, completely all over the place.
There doesn’t seem to be any future for Sanchez with United, but Ince believes it will be hard for the club to get him off their books given the high salary the forward picks up every week.
Ince added: “There has to be a decision made about his future at Old Trafford, because it’s not working.
“But this is the dilemma when you keep sacking managers, players the previous boss bought in on high wages are impossible to get rid of – so you have to try and make them work in your team.
“He’s a million miles away from being at his best, he looks like a completely different player.”
