Alexis Sanchez claims he wants to bring “joy” to the Manchester United fans despite his poor start to life at Old Trafford.

The Chilean’s form since moving to United has been well short of the glowing displays he produced at Arsenal to convince the Red Devils to buy him over a year ago.

To make matters worse, Sanchez suffered knee ligament damage in United’s 3-2 victory over Southampton earlier in March.

He will be sidelined for over a month and many fans are losing patience with the club’s highest earner.

However, Sanchez insists he is a winner and that he is determined to bring “joy” to the United faithful.

“I want to keep showing my love for football. I know what I can do,” Sanchez told Inside United. “I have belief in my ability.

“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. I want to score goals. I want to bring them joy. I want to win silverware.

“When we lost last year’s FA Cup final to Chelsea, I was not happy. Not happy at all. In fact, I was sad because I just wanted to make our wonderful supporters happy.

“When I was younger, I liked United. I swear. As a small child I liked United, I really liked them and I want to show this and bring the people joy because, obviously, I want to win.”
