Having arrived as a major coup from Arsenal, it’s fair to say Alexis Sanchez’s hasn’t quite delivered on expectations at Manchester United.
However, speaking in his pre-Chelsea press conference, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed he expects the 30-year-old to stay at the club for the foreseeable future and backed him to make his mark as a striker.
After hearing the update about the Chilean’s future, United fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Solskjaer’s revelation.
Many threw their backing behind the decision to hand Sanchez another chance at the club and urged their fellow fans to have “patience”.
Others however insisted the former Arsenal star’s career at Old Trafford is done and blamed Solskjaer for trying to suggest otherwise.
Check out some of the divided reaction of United fans below:
State of some of these people in the replies here. Season hasn’t started, be negative to the board by all means. But no point trying to have oles head. Patience is key.
