Alexis Sanchez eyes Champions League glory at United


Alexis Sanchez has praised Manchester United Interim Manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for trusting Paul Pogba and making good use of the France International.

The Chile international believes interim United manager has got the best out of the World Cup winner.

Pogba who almost got out of talking with former club manager, Jose Mourinho and was an unused substitute in their last two league games now has eight goals from eight appearances.

Sanchez said ‘Paul Pogba is still young, but he is a great player, who has to be trusted in the team,Mirror reports.

‘Now I see him far more involved in the team and he’s playing well. There’s a great atmosphere at the club.’

United have won eight of their nine league games under Solskjaer and Sanchez does not believe he has done it through pure luck.

“About what happens inside the locker room, I never speak,’  ‘People keep saying the way things have changed is like a ­miracle, but I do not believe in miracles.

“I only believe in work and more work – and that’s what we’ve done.’

Manchester United now stands fourth in the table having been 11 points off the Champions League spots when Mourinho was sacked in December.

The 55-years old qualified United for the last-16 of this year’s European competition and Sanchez believes United have a good chance of winning against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

“United is a club with so much history and is ­capable of beating any rival.

“If we win at Old Trafford and we don’t concede, then I think we would be favourites for the second leg.

“I think we can do that and I see this United team with a lot of chances to score in Paris.

“The Champions League is a dream for any footballer,”

“I lived with that dream at Barcelona and saw what it was like. I hope I can win it one day and why not here?’ Sanchez told the Mirror.
