Manchester United’s £50m signing, Anthony Martial has expressed his annoyance at his bit-part role at the club this season. Martial, who was signed from Monaco under Louis Van Gaal was an instant sensation at the club in his first season.
However, he has failed to replicate the same form as last season and Mourinho has left the player out of the starting eleven more often than not.
The French striker spoke to SFR sport ahead of Manchester United’s match against West Brom. The 21-year-old said,
‘It’s annoying to be on the bench, it’s truly annoying, but it’s a test you have to overcome and that’s how you progress.
‘It’s difficult because all you want is to be able to help the team and when you’re on the bench you can’t.
‘But these are choices and you have to accept it.’
He went on to say,
‘People expect a lot of me, but sometimes they forget I’m still young,’ he added, ahead of Saturday’s trip to West Brom.
‘Everyone can think what they want, it won’t change anything.’
