Solskjaer explains why Alexis has left
Ole explained to reporters why Alexis Sanchez has joined Inter Milan on loan until June 2010...
Why Alexis has left on loan “I think Alexis needed to go. As we know, he’s been here for 18 months and it’s not really worked out for him. For him, to restart and get himself playing regularly and scoring goals, that will only benefit everyone. For us, we’re going to watch every weekend to see Alexis and Romelu playing together.” Further thoughts on Alexis’s departure “For us, we had a decision to make here and I’m trusting Anthony, Marcus and Mason to be our centre-forwards. We’ve got wingers in Chongy, Daniel James, Pereira - we’ve got loads of options. For me it’s time for our boys to feel that pressure and responsibility, and be more robust, and to know ‘ok, I might have to play five games in a row’. That’s another responsibility and that’s something we are looking forward to at this club. I trust the fitness and medical staff. What we’ve done in pre-season, we are more mentally and physically ready for that challenge. That’s the next step for our young players.”
