Sanchez wants to bring ‘joy’ to United fans

first_imgHe has managed just five goals in 41 appearances for the club, with only two in 23 in this current injury-troubled season.But with the team’s fortunes transformed since caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced the sacked Jose Mourinho in December, Sanchez is looking towards a better future.“I want to keep showing my love for football. I know what I can do. I have belief in my ability,” he told Inside United magazine.“United are such an important club, not only in England but on a global level, and I would love to help bring a trophy to the supporters.”“Obviously, I want to make the United fans really happy,” the 30-year-old added. “I want to score goals. I want to bring them joy. I want to win silverware.“When we lost last year’s FA Cup final to Chelsea, I was not happy. Not happy at all. In fact, I was sad because I just wanted to make our wonderful supporters happy. I saw the fans who had come to pack out Wembley Stadium. They were all around me — all red. I liked it. Wembley was all red.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez has struggled since moving to Old Trafford © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 19 – Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez is determined to succeed at the club and says he still believes in himself despite a disappointing first year at Old Trafford.The Chile international, who is likely to be sidelined for another month with a knee injury, has endured a frustrating time since his move from Arsenal in January 2018.last_img read more

‘Harry Kane has to prove he’s not a one-season wonder’, insists ex-Spurs star

first_imgFormer Tottenham midfielder Alan Mullery has called for Harry Kane to prove he isn’t a ‘one-season wonder’ following his brilliant breakthrough last season.Kane was named the PFA Young Player of the Year after netting 31 goals for Spurs last term, form which saw him called up to the England squad and score on his Three Lions debut.But the 22-year-old has struggled so far this year, having failed to find the net in Tottenham’s opening four games of the new Premier league campaign.He finally opened the account for the season in England’s 6-0 win over against San Marino on Saturday, beating the part-time goalkeeper with a beautifully judged lob after replacinng Wayne Rooney in the second-half.And former Spurs star Mullery believes scoring his second international goal will give Kane the confidence to overcome the dreaded ‘second season syndrome’ when he returns to White Hart Lane.Speaking on Extra Time, he said: “I’m glad for him, because since the season has started he’s missed a few chances, and that really takes you back and you start to lose confidence.“But the boy is a goalscorer, he chipped the goalkeeper beautifully for his goal against San Marino, and that will give him a lot more confidence so when he goes back to Spurs he can start scoring again.“He’s only 21 and he’s still learning his trade. He did his apprenticeship  last season, where he got into the side and regularly scored goals, and now he’s got to prove to everyone that he’s not a one season wonder.“He’s a good player, there’s no doubt about it. He’s got the right attitude, he’s good to talk to and he’s very confident about his own ability.“He’ll score goals again this season.”last_img read more
