Man United offer simple explanation for Sanchez 'isolation'

The 29-year-old completed a high-profile switch to Old Trafford from Premier League rivals Arsenal in January to much fanfare among the United faithful.

And with recent reports that he dines alone in the canteen at United's Carrington training ground emerging it doesn't bode well for the man earning a cool £600k per week.

All I can say is that I feel extremely sorry for the way things turned out, and I feel just as sorry for Mourinho, giving us an excellent player and taking the most expensive dud in the world from us! 'After my arrival at United, it was hard to change everything very quickly.

The former Barcelona star enjoyed a fruitful spell at Arsenal, scoring 80 goals and registering 46 assists in 166 games.

'As I am self-demanding, I expected something better, ' Sanchez said last week.

The outlet quotes a source as saying: "He regularly does an extra 30 minutes working on free kicks and shooting after the main session has finished up". I even hesitated to come here [to Sweden, with the national team].

"By the time he has showered and changed, the majority of his team-mates have finished eating and gone".

The United forward told the Chilean media on Thursday: "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 hard".

So there we have it. Alexis eats alone in the canteen because he is trying to improve his game.

United fans keen to see a similar return to RVP when he made the move from London to Old Trafford have been left extremely disappointed as the Chilean looks out of place, like many, in Mourinho's team. The Chile worldwide was ripped apart by United mates after the club's humiliating defeat to Sevilla at the Old Trafford in the return leg of the Champions League last-16 clash.
