Andy Cole claims Alexis Sanchez will come good at Man United

Can Sanchez turn his Old Trafford career around?

Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole has claimed that Alexis Sanchez will come good at Old Trafford, despite his recent struggles.

Sanchez has made a very poor start to his Red Devils’ career.

The Chilean has so far been unable to replicate the form he showed during his time at Arsenal.

Over the past season-and-a-half, Sanchez has scored just three Premier League goals.

As a result, the forward has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer.

It was suggested recently that Juventus are interested in signing him.

However, former Man United striker Andy Cole has backed Alexis to come good at Old Trafford.

‘You just can’t become a bad player overnight…’

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Cole explained Sanchez’s situation reminds him of when Fernando Torres joined Chelsea.

Though, Cole believes the Chilean will turn it around.

‘Sanchez is a bit like the Torres thing,’ Cole explained.

‘You know, when Torres left Liverpool and went to Chelsea, all of a sudden he wasn’t the same individual and left everyone scratching their head.

‘I think the situation with Sanchez now has got everyone scratching their head.

‘For what he was at Arsenal and then coming to Manchester United, you turn and say, “well, where has it kind of gone wrong?” Because you can’t become a bad player overnight. You cannot do it.

‘For some reason, I keep saying to myself he’ll turn it around. He will turn it around.

‘If it’s at Manchester United we’ll have to wait and see but you just can’t become a bad player overnight because he has too many qualities.’
