Sanchez apologises to Manchester United fans after disastrous season

Alexis Sanchez has apologised to Manchester United's fans for his poor form this season, which he has put down to a string of injuries.

United's campaign came to an end in dismal fashion on Sunday as they lost 2-0 at home to Cardiff City.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side finished sixth, but picked up just two Premier League wins from the eight games since the former Molde coach was given the job on a permanent basis on March 28.

Sanchez has been a source of much frustration for United fans following his move from Arsenal in January 2018.

And the Chile international, who has scored just one league goal this term, took to his Instagram account to acknowledge that his performances have not been up to scratch.

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

"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.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

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.

Whether Sanchez will be part of the United squad moving forward remains to be seen, with it seeming increasingly likely that the club will look to cash in on the 30-year-old in the close season.
