Mar­tial has to prove him­self — Jose

The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

MANCH­ESTER: An­thony Mar­tial must prove he de­serves his place in the Manch­ester United team, man­ager Jose Mour­inho has said, adding that it would be un­fair to his ri­vals if the French striker con­tin­ued to earn se­lec­tion while un­der­per­form­ing. Mar­tial has strug­gled to con­vince Mour­inho since the Por­tuguese ar­rived at the start of the sea­son and has found him­self in and out of the first team, hav­ing made 13 Premier League ap­pear­ances this cam­paign, four of them from the bench. United re­cently sold Mem­phis De­pay to French side Olympique Ly­on­nais and Mour­inho said Mar­tial must make the most of his chance to nail down a first-team spot.
