Andy Cole tips Alexis Sanchez to get back on track under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
- Since moving to Old Trafford, the Chilean has scored four goals in 32 games.
- The ex-Red Devil believes the winger gives the ball away too much.
- However, he concedes the player's work ethic is still the same as at Arsenal.
- The Englishman thinks Alexis will improve under the new manager as everyone else has already done it.
Alexis Sanchez joined United from Arsenal last January. However, since his piano masterclass, the Chilean has hit the back of the net only four times in 32 games for The Red Devils. However, Andy Cole, United's former striker has no doubts we are yet to see his full potential.
"You never become a bad player overnight. When he left Arsenal for Man United, he joined a team which was totally different. You have to change as a player, which is difficult. His work ethic is the same, but while he has given the ball away too much, it has been because he’s been trying things because he wanted to produce a pass or score goals.
"He will improve because everyone else has improved since Ole took over. Alexis has got good pace and he never stops running or closing down. He’s like a little kid with a new football who wants to show how good he is. He was like that at Arsenal where he scored goals", concluded the former striker.
Since the Norwegian's arrival, the winger has only featured in two games due to his injury. Nevertheless, those appearances were quite fruitful as he registered an assist in both the victory over Newcastle and the FA Cup win against Reading. The Chilean didn't make the squad for the clash with Tottenham but the boss expects the 30-year-old to recover for the Prem game against Brighton on Saturday.
