MANCHESTER- Alexis Sanchez says he is expected a lot more from himself after he moved from Arsenal to Manchester United during the January transfer window.

The Chilean International has scored just once in his first 10 appearances for the club, expressing his disappointment, he said he had high expectations for himself and feels like he has struggled to adopt after his move.

Speaking to reporters for national duty as Chile faced Sweden, he said, “Because I demand a lot from myself, I was hoping for something better,”

“After my arrival at United, it was hard to change everything very quickly…

“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 difficult.”

The 29 year star winger said he was considering withdrawing from national duty to focus on United games and improving his game, but his Chilean teammate and captain Claudio Bravo changed his mind.

He added, “I had asked permission to miss these games, but then I thought better and spoke with Claudio and told him that we should all be united,”

Chile failed to qualify for this year’s World Cup to be hosted in Russia, they played friendly against Sweden on Saturday and they will Denmark on Tuesday for another friendly.
