'Sanchez has been a disaster for United'

English Premier League

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has labelled Alexis Sanchez's time at Old Trafford as an 'absolute disaster', following his departure to Inter Milan this week.

The Chilean spent the current season on loan at Inter after falling out of favour under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season, which lead to a loan move to Inter this campaign.

Sanchez only registered five goals and nine assists in 45 appearances for the Red Devils, but Neville admits no one expected the attacker to perform that badly.

"I thought he would be a forward who would play all across the line, who scored goals and was tenacious, but Sanchez has been an absolute disaster," the United legend told Sky Sports.

"I have no idea what's happened to him. There must be two of them. No one could have foreseen the disaster that was about to happen with Alexis Sanchez.

"That wasn't the Alexis Sanchez that played at Arsenal. He wasn't old when United signed him. He'd been proven. We knew United would get only a couple of years out of him, I know his wages were massive.

"But my point is, no one could have foreseen how bad he would be for the club."
