Wenger explains why Sanchez is struggling at Manchester United

Wenger explains why Sanchez is struggling at Manchester United

08 Nov 2018, 15:00

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed the reason for Sanchez' struggles at Old Trafford. Wenger claims that Alexis Sanchez is suffering a crisis of confidence at Manchester United .

The Chile international has scored just three Premier League goals since Wenger allowed him swap Arsenalfor Old Trafford in January. Sanchez has struggled to nail down a regular starting spot under Jose Mourinho and has failed to justify his massive wage packet.

The 29-year-old has netted just once this season but has led the line in the last two matches in the absence of the injured Romelu Lukau.

"I believe he has lost confidence," Wenger told beIN Sports . "The strength of Alexis Sanchez is to take initiative to dribble and to take people on. Those are the players who are most vulnerable when they lose confidence their game is based on that and having that feeling to take initiative, he has lost that slowly."

"Since the start of the season he had a high level of physical energy but he has lost that as well.  Certainly he is refreshed now because Mourinho left him out for a while."
