Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez disappointed with form since leaving Arsenal

The critics are already out on Man United's latest big money signing Alexis Sanchez, who has struggled as of yet to make a splash at his new club.
Shaka Hislop and Dan Thomas are at a loss for words after Jose Mourinho claimed that Manchester United lack "football heritage."

Alexis Sanchez has said he is disappointed with his start to life at Manchester United since joining the club from Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Sanchez, 29, has scored one goal in 10 appearances for United. That is a figure that does not compare to his scoring rate for Arsenal over the previous two seasons in which he netted 47 goals in all competitions for the Gunners.

"As I am self-demanding, I expected something better," Sanchez told the Chilean media while on national team duty in Sweden. "After my arrival at United, it was hard to change everything very quickly. I even hesitated to come here [to Sweden]."

Sanchez completed his move to United on Jan. 22 and made his debut in the FA Cup fourth-round win at Yeovil four days later.

He scored in United's 2-0 win over Huddersfield on Feb. 3, his second Premier League appearance after a loss to Tottenham, but has failed to net in seven appearances since.

"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," he added.

Chile missed out on qualification for this summer's World Cup in Russia.

Sanchez had sought permission to miss Saturday's friendly in Stockholm, but thought better of it after consulting Manchester City goalkeeper and Chile captain Claudio Bravo, who is not in the squad after reportedly turning down a call-up.

He said: "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."
