Suspect #2: Alexis Sanchez
Arguably the greatest transfer failure in the history of the club, Alexis Sanchez came to Manchester United in January 2018 under Jose Mourinho with great expectations. Unfortunately for the United faithful, he has only scored 3 goals since. Yes, he has been unlucky with injuries, but when he has played, he’s looked a shadow of the beast he was at former club Arsenal. No wonder he has moved down the pecking order at United with first Jose and now OGS preferring Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata over him.
Constantly being left out of the team in spite of being one of the most senior players, not to mention the highest paid player too, could make one feel bitter. And that bitterness could spread like fire around the dressing room. Is Sanchez’s bitterness driving the United dressing down?Published 30 Apr 2019, 18:34 IST
