Arsene Wenger mocks Alexis Sanchez amid his Manchester United struggles

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that Alexis Sanchez deserves his position on the substitutes’ bench, given he has not done enough to convince Ole Gunnar Solskjaer into handing him a starting role. The Chile international has struggled at the Red Devils since his move from Arsenal 13 months ago and he is currently regarded as not more than a game changer off the bench.

Speaking onBeIN Sports, Wenger indicated that the Chilean plays in the same position as Anthony Martial on the left wing and this has notably contributed to his reduced gametime, given Martial has become indispensable under the guidance of Ole, he said: “He has lost his place and plays in the same position as Martial. Today who would dispute that Martial is indispensable for Man United? He plays and that’s competition and that’s fair competition in my opinion.”

Marcus Rashford aiming for consistency after bagging Player of the Month award

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is aiming for consistency with his performances after bagging the Premier League Player of the Month award for January. The England international has witnessed a change in fortunes since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took temporary charge of the club in December and during this period, he has amassed six goals from just eight league matches.

Due to this, he managed to outclass a number of top players including Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero to the monthly gong and speaking after receiving the award, he was pleased to have helped the club in the progress. He added that consistency remains key during the forthcoming months with the Red Devils aiming to propel to the top four in the Premier League.

Danny Murphy feels Manchester United are free-flowing under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

TalkSPORT pundit Danny Murphy has said that Manchester United are more free-flowing with their style of play under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils had found themselves in a heap after the embarrassing 3-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool and this saw the board go with the decision to sack Jose Mourinho from the managerial role.

Since then, Ole has taken charge of the club on an interim basis and the move has paid dividends for the opening weeks with United going through a five-match winning run across all competitions. Speaking to TalkSPORT, Murphy indicated that Ole has brought some much-needed freshness and the added freedom offered to the players has been demonstrative of the results.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer open to permanent Manchester United job

Manchester United’s interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested that he would prefer a permanent deal with the Red Devils once his caretaker role concludes at the end of the campaign. The Norwegian was recruited from Molde on a short-term deal for the season after the Red Devils took the decision to axe Jose Mourinho from the head coach position.

Speaking to reporters, Solskjaer highlighted that he savours the dream of managing United for the long-term but he is nonetheless pleased to have got the opportunity to coach the club for the remainder of the ongoing campaign, he said: “I understand there are so many managers that would love to be manager of Manchester United. I am one of them, but it is not something we have talked about. I didn’t think twice when they called me to sign me as a player and this is an honour and privilege to be helping the club for a few months.”
