Manchester United’s Legend has revealed why he thinks Alexis Sanchez seem to be struggling for form at Old Trafford.

The Chilean joined Jose Mourinho’s side from Arsenal in the January transfer window after a protracted transfer saga that also involved Manchester City.

However, so much was expected from the former Barcelona forward but the 29-year-old is yet to hit the ground running so far for the Red devils.

Sanchez has featured in seven appearances since his move but has only scored one goal – a rebound from a penalty he missed – and has failed to produce any assists; a far cry from his 30 goals in all competitions for the Gunners last season.

Meanwhile, Wales boss Ryan Giggs, who spent his entire professional career playing for Manchester United, has insisted fans shouldn’t worry about Sanchez – and explained why things haven’t clicked for the attacker as of yet.

Speaking ahead of the 2018 Laureus World Sports Awards, via the Express, he said: “I think he’s done okay. His team-mates are still trying to find out what he likes, what he doesn’t like, the dynamics of the team.
“Sometimes it fits straight away, sometimes it takes a bit of time.

“I don’t think anyone should be worried about Alexis Sanchez, he’s a top, top player.”
