Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola has said Alexis Sanchez’s failure to succeed at Manchester United was not totally because of him as a player.
The EPL winner attempted to lure Sanchez to the Etihad Stadium but he eventually signed for their rivals in the 2018 winter window.
He netted only 5 goals during a terrible 18 months at Old Trafford and has now been loaned to Inter Milan but Pep feels the failed spell is not totally down to Alexis.
His words, “You judge it was a failure for just Alexis, but there are many reasons,”
“Quality is there. It is always there. It is not only for one player that doesn’t work with one team. They don’t play alone, it’s not tennis, it’s not golf.
“You play with 10 players against one system, against opponents, against many many things are involved in one player performing well in the team.
“When one player I had in my 10 years as a manager it doesn’t work, I don’t say it’s because of him.”
I don’t know [if it would have been different for Sanchez at City],”
“Maybe he would have been bad too. I don’t know. The moment he decided to go to United was perfect.
“I wished him all the best here and personally and that’s all. I don’t know what happened, I was not there so that’s why I cannot give my opinion, but I am not thinking it is just for one reason.”
