Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that he is out of ideas when it comes to salvaging Alexis Sanchez after the Chilean put in another pallid cameo performance against PSG in the Champions League.

Sanchez replaced the injured Jesse Lingard at half-time but was largely anonymous in the second half, contributing little of note, much to the chagrin of his coach.

Speaking after the game, Solksjaer addressed the issue in front of the assembled media:

I can’t do anything about Alexis Sanchez. When he plays he needs to find himself.

We know there’s a quality player there.

Might we suggest a gap yahr backpacking through Thailand, or perhaps a soy-based yoga retreat in the mountains of Tibet?

The more we see of latter day Sanchez, the more he looks ready for MLS or the Chinese Super League. The technique is there in flashes, but the inclination and application – the relentless aggro that once propelled him – clearly is not.

The truth is he was beginning to look shot during his final season at Arsenal, and as the insipid performances continue to stack up, perhaps it’s time to realise that there isn’t anything left to salvage.

At 30, he may, without wishing to sound overly dramatic, be finished at the very top level.

    Ship him off to Hollywood!

      Why? Does he have a propensity for drugs and drink?

        Have you heard of LA Galaxy? It’s probably on google. It’s a club based in the galaxy of Los Angeles. Horrible teenage warrior name, like all names in America. Herbalife is the sponsor, because there are only fat fucks in America. They also tend to sign faded stars like Becks and Ibra because that is what americans want… do you get it now?

        Would your chair be even more comfy with a dildo on it? Muaaaah.

  4. Geraldo says:

    He needs to find himself…out the door at the end of the season. Enough is enough – his non-performance against PSG the other night was final and conclusive proof that he is not a team player and couldn’t give a toss about anything except his pay packet.
