Alexis Sánchez is still determined to fight for his spot at Manchester United despite enduring a tough spell in his first year.

Expectations were high when the Chilean arrived at the club from Arsenal in January 2018, but the 30-year-old has scored only five goals in 41 games since joining the club.

The Chilean forward scored an impressive total of 80 goals in 166 games during his three-and-a-half-year spell at Arsenal, and he wants to replicate that form to impress his new fans.

According to AFP he said: "I want to keep showing my love for football. I know what I can do. I have belief in my ability," he told Inside United magazine.

"United are such an important club, not only in England but on a global level, and I would love to help bring a trophy to the supporters."

"Obviously, I want to make the United fans really happy," the 30-year-old added. "I want to score goals. I want to bring them joy. I want to win silverware.”

Sanchez is currently out with a knee injury, and is expected to spend at least another month on the side-lines.
