Alexis Sanchez: Backed to return to form by Barcelona director of football, Ando

The Chilean has only managed four goals in all competitions so far this season and he has come in for criticism in recent weeks.

Sanchez has been linked with a move to AC Milan, who Barca face in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, but Zubizarreta says that he still has faith in the striker.

"I do not know one player in the history of Barcelona that has arrived and always lived wonderful moments," he said.

"To evaluate a footballer, it is important to look at his overall performance rather than just in the middle of the season."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
