Anthony Martial seeks showdown talks with Man United boss

Anthony Martial seeks showdown talks with Man United boss

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho sent a firm message to Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford about their roles at the club ahead of Sunday's clash with West Brom.

The France forward is refusing to sign a new contract until he is assured of regular game time.

In the 12 games since Sanchez made his debut in the FA Cup win over Yeovil on January 2, Rashford has started just twice.

The boss gave his thoughts on the visiting side who are now rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table in his press conference at the Aon Training Complex.

While only Romelu Lukaku has played more than the 43 games the England worldwide has started for his club, just 22 of those have come from the beginning of games.

Adding that he had not selected Rashford for his recent starting line-ups "because I decide that way", Mourinho said: "If I were you, I would go in another direction (with your question)".

When Martial not being first-choice was brought up, Mourinho explained: "If I was you I would go with why [Romelu] Lukaku plays every match, why [Nemanja] Matic plays every match".

"A lot of people have that dream [of being a local homegrown player], so you're not only doing it for you; you're doing it for a lot of people that you might not even know, but there are a lot of people who had the dream of playing for their local team when they were young", he said.

No, no. If I have more competitions for him I have more competition for the other ones you are saying are not happy because they are not playing.

Rashford was also reported to be seeking a move away from the club if Mourinho will be the manager next season. We have played well against the top teams.

"I have dry answers and a dry answer is only eleven can start the match and we are 22". "Obviously, to finish fourth, we need four or five points, but to finish second we need much more than that". "I tried to raise the level of training and I think I managed to do it because I am really pleased with this week".
