Solskjaer:Alexis Sanchez Has New Lease on Life

Share this Story:

Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Alexis Sanchez has a “new lease of life” as the Chilean forward tries to rediscover his best form at Old Trafford.

Sanchez was a high-profile arrival from Premier League rivals Arsenal in January last year, however, the former Barcelona star has struggled for form and fitness in Manchester.

The 30-year-old, who only scored three goals for United last season, has been limited to just 14 matches in all competitions this term due to a hamstring injury.

But since returning to the squad, Sanchez has tallied two assists in two appearances and Solskjaer is confident the veteran will soon be back to his best ahead of Sunday’s trip to Tottenham.

“He’s got high standards himself that you demand from yourself,” Solskjaer told reporters. “When it doesn’t work for you, as it clearly hasn’t and he’s had some injuries, then it’s difficult to suddenly click and put that confidence on.

“So [we’ve had] individual chats but, of course, it’s a fresh start for him with me and Mike [Phelan] coming in – it’s a new lease of life for him maybe. Hopefully we can see the best of him because he’s a top, top player.”
