Mourinho has sent a clear message to Anthony Martial
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has sent a clear message to Anthony Martial, warning that the Frenchman needs to do more to impress him. Martial joined United in a £36m move from Monaco in 2015, but this season he has struggled to earn a regular starting place. Mourinho's advice to him? Be more like Marcus Rashford... "The players have to come in my direction. That is why Marcus Rashford, even without scoring goals, even being without a Premier League goal since September, was always a player that I trusted, a player that I played ... because he was always coming in the direction of what I want from a Manchester United player. "Do I think Anthony has potential? Yes. Do I think he can play successfully for me? Yes, I think. But he needs to give me things that I like very much."
