Chilean footballer Alexis Sanchez has admitted that he has been disappointed with his start to life at Manchester United.Sanchez, 29, joined the Red Devils in January, joining from Arsenal in a deal that makes him the Premier League’s best-paid player. But things haven’t run smoothly for the former Barcelona star, with Sanchez scoring just once in 10 games following his switch. And speaking in Sweden on Wednesday, Sanchez made clear that he too had not been satisfied with his performances thus far, while also admitting his United struggles had seen him question whether he should skip linking up with his national team.“Seeing as I demand a lot of myself, I expected something better,” declared Sanchez. “After my arrival at United, it was hard to change everything very quickly. I even hesitated to come here [to Sweden, with the national team]. I had asked permission to miss these games and stay in England, but then I thought better and spoke with Claudio [Bravo] and told him that we should all be united. The change of club was something that was very abrupt – it was the first time I’ve changed clubs in January – but many things have happened in my life that are difficult.”Sanchez was also asked about his relationship with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, someone to whom Sanchez says he has grown relatively close during his time at Old Trafford. “I trained for a month and a half with Zlatan and his quality is impressive,” added Sanchez. “We talk and we have a coffee together every day. It’s sad he doesn’t play for his country now.” Chile, unlike this week’s opponents, Sweden, won’t be at this summer’s World Cup, with a pair of errors from Manchester City stopper Bravo costing them fifth place in South American qualifying in the final round of matches.Bravo has subsequently been heavily blamed in his homeland for his side’s absence in Russia, and there are questions whether the 34-year-old will retire from international football. Bravo is not in the current squad. “Nobody is angry with him. As a group we to talk together and say things to each other to our faces. We want to sit down and talk alike. The doors are open for him, we know he is the captain, has has given us many triumphs,” continued Sanchez. “He is the captain, the most important player we have; but he will have his reasons and his motives. He needs time to think, reflect and its his opinion and we have to respect it. We are a family, including Claudio.”Photo Credit: Getty
