He also told Macarana Pizarro, the female journalist who interviewed him for Chilevision TV, that he was still suffering from Chile's failure to make the World Cup.

Having joined Manchester United only a few weeks ago from North London giants Arsenal, Sanchez revealed that he would love to return back to Chile at Universidad De Chile to end his footballing career.

"The more pressure I'm under, the better I feel", the forward said. The 29-year-old earns a fortune at Old Trafford, a reported £450,000 a week but has come under the criticism from the United faithful regarding his recent performances. "So, I don't want the fans to have lower expectations, I want the fans to have high expectations because I want the players to have high expectations too".

Manchester United will take on Brighton and Hove Albion in the FA Cup quarter-final at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
