Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has spoken about the struggles experienced by Alexis Sanchez since joining the Red Devils at the start of 2018. The Chile international could not make a meaningful impact during the backend of the previous campaign as he struggled to adapt to the club’s style of play, but he showed signs of overcoming the difficulty during the pre-season tour of the United States.

However, with the 2018/19 season having begun, Sanchez has once more gone through the same trend and speaking to Sky Sports News, Mourinho has suggested that injuries have somewhat hampered the Chilean’s progress with the club, he said: “He arrived January, in the first period of the season for him. I don’t think is ever an easy situation for a player but this season he had a good start a good pre-season, he started well against Leicester, and then he was injured. Then he came back and was injured again and he is the kind of player that needs to be really sharp.”

Former England manager Sam Allardyce has been critical of midfielder Paul Pogba after he failed to show up during Manchester United’s shock 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur. The France international started the campaign with a man of the match showing versus Leicester City but he has since looked off-peak with his performance.

Speaking on TalkSPORT, Allardyce was defensive of under-fire manager Jose Mourinho and suggested that United were the dominant side despite the result. However, he did not have any sympathy for Pogba, who struggled to gain control over the likes of Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier in the centre of the park.

Former West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic believes Marcus Rashford should stay put at Manchester United and prove himself rather than pursuing a fresh challenge elsewhere. The England international has been linked with a potential exit from Old Trafford in recent months after receiving limited gametime under Jose Mourinho.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Bilic stressed that Rashford has played more games than most younger players at the same age and he should concentrate on getting better than pondering over an exit, he said: "We had a small talk about whether he should leave Manchester United. And I said 'no way, you are not leaving United at that age and you are playing.' He doesn't start every game, but he has been involved in every competition – maybe he even played too many games. He is playing under Mourinho for the biggest clubs in the world – why would you leave? Prove yourself there."

ESPN Pundit Shaka Hislop does not believe Manchester United will succeed in signing Gareth Bale from Real Madrid this summer. The Wales international has been linked with both United and Bayern Munich since the start of the transfer window and Hislop feels the attacker would join the latter if he was to choose.

Speaking on the ESPN FC show, he said: “We’ve been talking about this for, not just this summer, but for the last two or three summers in all honesty. I’m going to put this down as a miss.Not because I don’t think Gareth Bale would be a great fit at Manchester United, and Manchester United are desperate to get him.But I think Bale was linked with Bayern Munich a couple of months ago, I think that’s more likely of the two destinations. So as a result, I’m going to put that down as a miss.”

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he would be eyeing for signings who can earn more quality to the squad next season. The Red Devils are set for their best-ever league finish since the Alex Ferguson era but they have still been far off from competing with Manchester City for the Premier League title.

As such, Mourinho is keen on adding more quality to his ranks during the summer after admitting that he has tried to get the best out of the current set of players, he told reporters: “How many points separate us from Manchester City?. Not two, three or four. A lot of points.Some of the people we have, they have to be more consistent in their performance and we need more quality. I trust some more than others that can bridge that gap. That's normal. I know the players. I worked with the players for a couple of years, so I know them better than anyone.”

Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho has denied any link to Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale and Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann. There were reports that when Real Madrid rework their squad during the summer, Bale could be on his way out. Manchester United were one of the leading sides gunning for the signature of the player but with the capture of Alexis Sanchez, Mourinho says such would no longer be possible.

Sanchez has showed his obvious quality since moving to Manchester from Arsenal this winter. The Chilean missed his penalty but scored the rebound as United thrashed Huddersfield Town on Sunday at Old Trafford.

Rio Ferdinand Brands Manchester United As ‘A Team Full Of Strangers’

Manchester United legend-turned-pundit Rio Ferdinand viciously criticised the performance of his former club who failed to show up against Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday night. The round of 16 tie had been excellently poised following a goalless draw in the first-leg in Seville, but United struggled to make the most of their home advantage.

Right from the off, Jose Mourinho’s side gave control of possession to the opposition, and they were very fortunate to have not conceded before the break. The game continued in the same vein after the interval until Wissam Ben Yedder’s arrival changed the complexion of the tie. The Frenchman took advantage of some tired legs in the United defence to score two goals within four minutes, and this ended United’s chances of progressing as Romelu Lukaku netted the sole consolation in a 2-1 aggregate defeat.
