Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sent a warning to Alexis Sanchez by stating that the Chilean must prove his worth to make the starting lineup. The 30-year-old has struggled to make a meaningful impact with the Red Devils since joining them from Arsenal 18 months ago and he is currently on the sidelines with a minor hamstring injury.
Sanchez had struggled with injury concerns during the backend of the previous campaign but it appeared that he had overcome the same after featuring for Chile at the Copa America. However, he suffered a fresh hamstring problem during the third-place play-off game against Argentina and that has certainly ruled him out for most of the pre-season with United.
Elsewhere, United have made two signings in the form of Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka and the latter of those is expected to cement the right-back role next season. Nonetheless, the club don’t seem to have done enough to compete for the Premier League title and the focus seems on recruiting players, who can make the difference on the long-term. United begin their Premier League campaign with a home game against Chelsea.
