Alexis Sánchez apologises for disappointing season with Manchester United

He put his bad form down to injuries

Alexis Sánchez has issued an apology to Manchester United fans after another disappointing season at Old Trafford.

As the club's highest earner, a lot more was expected of Sánchez when he joined the club in a swap deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan go the other way, to Arsenal.

But he has failed to make any sort of impact, bar draining United of half a million pounds every week in exchange for some top quality dog content on Instagram.

The Chilean took to Instagram again on Sunday night, but this time there were no pups to enjoy. This time he fronted up to the criticism he has been facing, accepting that he had not played well this season, attributing his poor form to injuries.

"It was a very tough season... the fan are the ones who deserve an apology as they always support you no matter what happens," Sanchez said.


"Personally, I didn’t perform as much as I was expecting because of unpredictable injuries. Press and people were speculating of things that were not even true. I was always a professional in all aspects.

"I apologise to the fans for not being able to achieve our goals, nevertheless we are Manchester United!

"Players and Staff are questioning if we were doing the right thing and if we were giving our best for this football shirt... I'm certain that Manchester United one day will return to be the club, as it was in the old days with Mr. Alex Ferguson."

Fue una temporada muy complicada, pero ellos los fans, son los únicos que se merecen unas disculpas, te apoyan siempre a pesar de todo por este club. En lo personal, no jugué todo lo que esperaba, me lesioné de cosas que nunca me habían pasado. Hay cosas internas que la gente y periodistas hablan sin saber. Siempre fui profesional en todo sentido, ofrezco disculpas a los fans 🙏🏽 por no estar peleando cosas importantes, siendo que somos el Manchester United. Jugadores y Staff saquemos conclusión, si hicimos lo correcto y entregamos lo mejor de cada uno por esta camiseta... Estoy seguro que el Manchester United, volverá a ser el club, que algún día fue, con el señor Alex Ferguson. ⬇️ 🙏🏽 It was a very tough season...the fan are the ones who deserve an apology as they always support you no matter what happens.
