Jose Mourinho Sends Warning To Out-Of-Form Manchester United Star
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has sent a warning to one of his out-of-form players.
The Portuguese tactician was hailed by most of the squad after United's convincing 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday. But while many Red Devils fans' and players were celebrating the victory against the log leaders, Martial wasn't even in the squad.
"Is Anthony a player with great potential? Yes," Mourinho said when asked about the Frenchman, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.
"Can he play for success with me? Yes, but he needs to give things for me I like."
Mourinho then stated that his players should know by now what he expects of them, using Marcus Rashford as example.
"We have been together for almost 10 months. The same way I know the players better now, the players should know me much better now," he added.
"The same way I know what the players like, I think the players also know what I like.
"The same way I have to go in the direction of the players, they also have to come in my direction and that is the point.
"That is why Marcus Rashford, even without scoring, even when he hadn't scored in the Premier League, even without that, he was always a player I trust, I play and support.
"He was always coming in my direction for what I want from a Manchester United player. It is about getting to know each other better and better and go in the direction of things I like."
Martial might get another chance to prove his worth to Mourinho when United face Anderlecht in the second leg of their UEFA Europa League quarter-final on Thursday night.
