Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has slammed Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez as a selfish player who plays only for himself.

The Chilean international has struggled since joining Manchester United from Arsenal in January.

His bad form for Manchester United prompted Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho to leave him out of the 18-man squad that lost at West Ham.

Scholes insists Sanchez was never suited to play for Manchester United and believes he was signed just to stop him from joining rivals Manchester City.

“I know he has qualities and has been a good player, but I never saw him as a United player,” Scholes told ESPN.

“I saw him as a bit selfish, someone who played for himself sometimes. I didn’t think he was a player that we needed, especially for that type of money.

“How would we be able to get rid of him now when he earns those wages? The signing felt like it happened just to stop Man City signing him.”
