Mourinho issues warning to Martial
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has advised Anthony Martial to play more according to his instructions if he wants to have a future at Old Trafford.
The France international has struggled to gain a regular starting place in Mourinho's side and could be surplus to requirements if he does not shape up in the remaining months of the season.
The Portuguese coach said, "We have been together for almost 10 months. The same way I know the players so much better now, the players should know me also much better now.
"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, the players have also to come in my direction. That's the point.
"That's why Marcus Rashford, even without scoring goals, was always a player that I trust, always a player that I played, always a player that I support. Because he was always coming in the direction of what I want from a Manchester United player.
"Do I think Anthony is a player with great potential? Yes, I think. Do I think he can play successfully for me? Yes, I think. But he needs to give me things that I like very much."
