Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez is ‘nothing short of a disgrace’ based on his current displays, according to club legend Paul Ince.
Sanchez, 30, arrived at Old Trafford in January last year in a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving to Arsenal.
With the Chile international widely regarded as one of the finest attackers in the Premier League at the time, with a record of 80 goals and 45 assists for the Gunners in 166 games, he has snatched on a £450k-a-week contract.
However, the former FC Barcelona man has not replicated the sort of form that made him a fan favourite at the Emirates, with just five goals in over a year.
And after his insipid display in the 2-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday evening, Ince has not held back in his assessment of the player.
“The way Alexis Sanchez is playing at the moment is nothing short of a disgrace. His performances are a joke for the wage he gets,” Ince said, as per The Mirror.
“I wouldn’t begrudge his high wage, either, if I thought that he was truly putting his all in and playing well, but when you give someone that kind of money you expect a lot more.
“The fans deserve better, Ole deserves better, and so do the rest of his team. There has to be a decision made about his future at Old Trafford, because it’s not working.
“But this is the dilemma when you keep sacking managers, players the previous boss brought in on high wages are impossible to get rid of – so you have to try and make them work in your team. He’s a million miles away from being at his best, he looks like a completely different player.”
