I expected better of myself at Manchester United: Sanchez


New Man United signing, Alexis Sanchez has acknowledged that he expected better performance from himself following his move to Old Trafford.

Sanchez joined United from Arsenal in January but has tried to gain form managing to seal one goal in 10 appearances since arriving at Old Trafford.

The Chilean international admitted that he has battled to adapt to his new life in Manchester after four seasons with the Gunners.

"As I am self-demanding, I expected something better," Sanchez told the Chilean media while on national team duty in Sweden.

He added: "The change of club was something that was very abrupt - it was the first time I've changed clubs in January - but many things have happened in my life that are difficult."

Meanwhile, Sanchez would not be going for World Cup after Chile missed out on qualification for the World Cup in Russia. Sanchez thus revealed he wanted to miss Saturday's friendly against Sweden in Stockholm before changing his mind after consulting Chile captain Claudio Bravo.

"I had asked permission to miss these games, but then I thought better and spoke with Claudio and told him that we should all be united," he said.
