Solskjaer sends warning to Alexis Sanchez

Solskjaer sends warning to Alexis Sanchez

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has once again sent out a warning to Alexis Sanchez, saying he will no 'spoon feed' the former Arsenal star this coming season. 

Sanchez has hugely disappointed ever since making the switch from London, with reports indicating he might be willing to leave Old Trafford. 

Solskjaer, however, was non-committal on whether the 30-year-old will leave the club, instead insisting he will have to take chances presented to him.

 "At the moment, yes I am." The Norwegian said when asked if he thought it was possible for Sanchez to get back to his best.

“I will have to help, but you can’t spoon feed them, they’ve got to come in and grab their chances,"  Solskjaer added.

"Alexis is quality and he showed it in Copa America. Then he got his injury. I don’t think it’s too bad so I’m hoping he will be available for maybe Kristiansund [on July 30] or AC Milan [four days later] so he will at least get some football before the season starts.”

Sanchez has scored a meagre five goals in 45 matches for United, since his move that also saw Henrik Mkhitaryan move in the opposite direction.
