F365’s early loser: Alexis Sanchez, ‘wandering like a soul in pain’

For a cutting assessment, go to the Manchester Evening News, who describe the introduction of Alexis Sanchez as the moment Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘effectively reduced United to 10 men’.

For poetry, we should of course go to Paris, where L’Equipe described Sanchez as ‘wandering like a soul in pain’, which is a beautiful way to describe a man who played like a latter-day Wayne Rooney, ghosting through a game without leaving any impression but sadness.



Six weeks after describing Sanchez as “chomping at the bit” to get on the pitch and a month since suggesting the Chilean has “a new lease of life” under his management at Manchester United, Solskjaer sounded rather more like a previous Manchester United manager when he opined: “I can’t do anything about Alexis Sanchez.” The Norwegian could coax Anthony Martial and cajole Paul Pogba, but he has found himself at a loss for ways to motivate Sanchez, who looks like a man who has fallen out of love with football.



The only question is whether any club will pay the wages of a soul in pain.

In games against Burnley and then against the Foxes, the thinness of United’s squad was exposed.

It’s the closest he has come to throwing any players under a bus, with Juan Mata and Sanchez the two players teetering on the edge of the curb.

The audible groans of the United fans when Sanchez was flagged offside against PSG on Tuesday night suggested that patience has almost dwindled into nonexistence at Old Trafford when it comes to the Chilean; most would like to see him wander right out of the club.
