- Alexis Sanchez got injured while warming up in his side's Champions League tie against PSG
- Sanchez was about to replace Englishman Jesse Lingard before he collided with the linesman
- He has not been impressive this season for Manchester United scoring one goal in 14 games
Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez got injured while warming up against French club Paris-Saint-Germain in the Champions League game at Old Trafford.
The former Arsenal star was warming up to replace injured Jesse Lingard when he collided with the linesman but he was still able to enter the pitch.
According to the report by Daily Mail, Alexis Sanchez immediately told Manchester United technical crew that he had suffered an injury.
But the decision was made by the technical crew to keep him up on to prevent his leg from stiffening up.
Alexis Sanchez was not impressive in the Champions League match against Paris-Saint-Germain as he could not save his side from an home defeat.
This will be another setback for Sanchez who hasn’t enjoyed an easy ride since joining the Red Devils on a £500,000-per-week from Arsenal.
“I can’t do anything about Alexis Sanchez
“When he plays he needs to find himself because there’s a quality player there,'' Solskjaer said to the Telegraph.
Alexis Sanchez has played 14 Premier League games this season for Manchester United scoring only one goal and provided three assists.
Manchester United who are currently occupying fourth position on the Premier League standings will face Chelsea in their next encounter in the FA Cup.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how former England international Alan Shearer named Chilean football star Alexis Sanchez as the only player whose game has not improved under Manchester United boss Solskjaer.
Since December 2018 that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, Manchester United have been in superb form in all competitions.
