Alexis Sanchez is determined to “win silverware” at Manchester United and insists he still has belief in his ability.
The Chile international, who is likely to be sidelined for another month with a knee injury, has endured a frustrating time at Old Trafford since his move from Arsenal in January 2018, having managed just five goals in 41 appearances, with only two in 23 in this current injury-troubled season.
But with the general form of the team having improved under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Sanchez is looking towards a better future and says he is desperate to win trophies at the club.
"I want to keep showing my love for football. I know what I can do. I have belief in my ability," the forward told Inside United.
"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."
He added: "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."
