Sanchez targets United Champions League glory



ALEXIS Sanchez is hopeful he can achieve his dream of winning the Champions League with Manchester United.

United face Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their last-16 tie at Old Trafford on Tuesday night with confidence high after they claimed their 10th victory from 11 matches in all competitions under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a 3-0 win at Fulham.

Sanchez missed out on European glory while at Barcelona, having joined the club the season after they won the Champions League in 2011 before leaving before they won it again in 2015.

“The Champions League is a dream for any footballer,” Sanchez told the Sunday Mirror.

“I lived with that dream at Barcelona and saw what it was like. I hope I can win it one day and why not here?

“We have got through the group stage and PSG is next. It’s a big test but it’s 180 minutes of football – anything can happen.

“United is a club with so much history and is capable of beating any rival.

“If we win at Old Trafford and we don’t concede, then I think we would be favourites for the second leg.

“I think we can do that and I see this United team with a lot of chances to score in Paris.” - Sky Sports
