Alexis Sanchez Finally Reveals If He Regrets Dumping Arsenal For Man United
Forward Alexis Sanchez “does not regret” joining Manchester United but says he did not get enough playing time to be a success.
The Chilean, 30, joined Inter Milan on a season-long loan deal in August after 19 months at Old Trafford.
He was United’s highest earner on about £400,000 a week – but scored only five times in 45 games after joining from Arsenal in January 2018.
“I’m very happy I went to Manchester United,” Sanchez told BBC Sport.
“I’ve always said that. It’s the club that’s won the most in England.
“When I went to Arsenal it was fantastic – I was happy there – but United were growing at the time, they were buying players to win something.
“I wanted to join them and win everything. I don’t regret going there.”
“I think that I’m happy when I play for my national team,” he said.
“I was happy at Manchester United too, but I’ve always said to my friends: I want to play.
“If they would let me play I’ll do my best. Sometimes I’d play 60 minutes then I wouldn’t play the next game – and I didn’t know why.”
