Gary Neville questions Alexis Sanchez at Man United
Gary Neville admits he isn't sure why Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford have not been performing at the top level recently for Man United
Gary Neville has admitted that he doesn’t know “what’s happened” to Alexis Sanchez at Manchester United.
The Chile international has struggled to find consistent form since his arrival at Old Trafford from Premier League rivals Arsenal back in January 2018.
The 30-year-old has struggled to with both form and fitness issues and he has seen his first-team opportunities severely restricted this season.
Manchester United have failed to find consistent form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was confirmed as the Red Devils’ new permanent manager last month.
The reasons for Sanchez having failed to hit top gear for Manchester United remain unclear, and Red Devils legend Neville named the attacker as one of the stars whose form he has been perplexed by.
Speaking to Sky Sports before Wednesday night’s derby clash with Manchester City, Neville said: “They can be the best in their position but all of them at this moment in time are well below the standard.
“Alexis Sanchez, I don’t know what’s happened to him.
“Marcus [Rashford], this last couple of weeks has been nowhere near it.
“I went to both Barcelona games and he just looks off it, he looks like he’s carrying an injury or he’s not quite right, or the season has caught up with him.”
Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon when they take on Chelsea FC in front of their home fans at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils are aiming to try and break back into the top four this season as their last remaining route into next term’s Champions League.
Manchester United were dumped out of the Champions League by FC Barcelona in the quarter-finals last week.
