Mourinho points to Rashford as example for struggling Martial
Apr 21 2017 by Marjorie Miles
Martial has struggled to adapt to life under Mourinho, with the 21-year-old starting just twelve Premier League games so far this season.
José Mourinho has warned Anthony Martial he needs to learn from the example of Marcus Rashford and improve his attitude if he wants to find a way back into Manchester United's first-team plans.
"We are in trouble", Mourinho said.
"I have to go in the direction of the players, but they also have to go in my direction."
Regarding 19-year-old Rashford, Mourinho said: "It is hard for the kid to play every match, but I always trust the players with special mentalities". Rooney missed that match with an ankle injury and hasn't played for United since their 0-0 English Premier League draw with West Brom, at the start of the month.
The France worldwide has failed to build on a hugely promising first season with United and has made only 12 starts in the Premier League since Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal as manager. It's about getting to know each other better and better and better and going in the direction of things we like. "Do I think Anthony is a player with great potential? Yes".
"I don't think they are easy injuries, but I prefer to wait for all the tests to be done tomorrow". "It was a very good performance", Mourinho said.
Ibrahimovic and Rojo suffered knee problems as United edged into the Europa League semi-finals with a 2-1 extra-time win at home to Anderlecht.
