Cole tells Man Utd: Don't give up on Alexis Sanchez

Manchester United legend Andrew Cole insists they should persist with Alexis Sanchez.

Sanchez managed just two goals across 27 appearances in all competitions for Manchester United in 2018-19, leading to widespread talk of the club cutting their losses this summer.

But Cole said: "That's the million dollar question because there's noises that he might not be there, whatever.

"Sanchez is a bit like the Torres thing. You know, when Torres left Liverpool and went to Chelsea, all of a sudden he wasn't the same individual and left everyone scratching their head.

"I think the situation with Sanchez now has got everyone scratching their head.

"For what he was at Arsenal and then coming to Manchester United, you turn and say, 'well, where has it kind of gone wrong?' Because you can't become a bad player overnight. You cannot do it.

"For some reason, I keep saying to myself he'll turn it around. He will turn it around.

"If it's at Manchester United we'll have to wait and see but you just can't become a bad player overnight because he has too many qualities."
