Alexis Sanchez urged to leave Man Utd and find regular football by Chile legend Ivan Zamorano

ALEXIS SANCHEZ has been told to make sure he is playing regular football at Manchester United or find it somewhere else by Chile legend Ivan Zamarano.

The 30-year-old’s move to Old Trafford from Arsenal last year has been nothing short of a disaster scoring just three Premier League goals.

United are happy to listen to offers for the forward in order to get his £500,000-a-week wages off the books.

Sanchez has found some form for Chile scoring twice in three Copa America games this month.

And 52-year-old Zamarano who scored 34 goals in 69 games for his country insists Sanchez must be a regular starter next season to get his career back on track.

He told Omnisport: “What’s best for (Sanchez) is to play – wherever he can, be it at Manchester United or any other team.

“The important thing is for him to be constantly competing.

“I talk from my experience. Sometimes when you’re abroad and you’re not playing, it is hard to regain the level.

“We’ve seen it, Alexis hasn’t played in Manchester for a long time, but the second he puts on the Chilean shirt, he’s different. That’s what we like.

“No matter how you are doing at your team, we hope at the moment you put on the Chilean shirt you give your best, and that’s what Alexis is doing.

“I’m very happy to see him regaining his level and to see him being a vital part of Chile, being a protagonist in South America again.”

Sanchez, despite suffering an ankle knock in the win over Ecuador started in the defeat against Uruguay on Monday night.
