Alexis Sanchez is still keen on winning trophies at Manchester United despite struggling to make an impact at the club since arriving from Arsenal.

The Chile international, who is making a speedy recovery in the bid to return to action for the end of the season run-in has managed to score five goals in 41 appearances.

A section of United fans have given up on him, however, the former Barca man is still confident in his abilities and would like to help the club win trophies under caretaker manager Solskjaer.

“I want to keep showing my love for football. I know what I can do. I have belief in my ability,” the forward told Inside United and cited on Sky Sports.

“United are such an important club, not only in England but on a global level, and I would love to help bring a trophy to the supporters.”

He added: “Obviously, I want to make the United fans really happy. I want to score goals. I want to bring them joy. I want to win silverware.”

Sanchez stated he was gutted after losing to Chelsea in the F.A Cup and spoke about his fondness for the club back as a child.

Top 5 – Things learned from the midweek Premier League games

With the Premier League closing in on the finish line we enjoyed several games in midweek so that some teams could catch up.

“When we lost last year’s FA Cup final to Chelsea, I was not happy. Not happy at all. In fact, I was sad because I just wanted to make our wonderful supporters happy.

“When I was younger, I liked United. I swear. As a small child I liked United, I really liked them and I want to show this and bring the people joy because, obviously, I want to win.”

The quest for silverware will continue when the Red Devils take on Barca in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, however, Sanchez may not be fit to feature in the first leg.
