According to Sky Sports pundit Mark McAdam, the Chilean’s career in England has been very difficult, but he can still develop into a great player.

Alexis Sanchez left the Americas in 2011 to join Barcelona.

And the Chilean stayed with the Blaugrana for three years, before leaving for Arsenal in 2014.

And after a very difficult 2017-2018 season, he joined Manchester United.

According to Sky Sports football expert Mark McAdam, this might have been the best choice for the Chilean.

“I feel sorry for him because I don’t want to see a footballer – particularly someone as talented as Alexis Sanchez – fail on the biggest stage,” he was quoted by The Express.

“And that’s what’s happening at Manchester United.”

“He was unreal at Arsenal. The number of times I watched him drag that team towards three points,” he added.

“It just hasn’t worked out at Man Utd and I feel he deserves an opportunity to prove himself elsewhere.”

McAdam explained: “He has the quality. Players don’t become bad players overnight. He will go on to prove he’s a good player.”
