The German military leader said he wants striker Anthony Martial to focus on playing for Man United.

“I had a chat with Anthony Martial over the weekend. In it, I talked to him about what happened and frankly shared my thoughts on the whole thing. Everything is now settled. We’ll have to wait and see,” journalist Fabrizio Romano quoted coach Ralf Rangnick as saying.

Coach Rangnick continuously eliminated Martial to give opportunities to Rashford and Elanga.

Before that, Martial and coach Rangnick had conflicting statements. The German military leader accused Martial of not wanting to play, while the former Monaco star insisted he never refused to play for the “Red Devils”.

Former player Rio Ferndinand also spoke about this incident. He does not accept that a player openly quarrels with the coach, and calls for the management to investigate. If it is discovered that Martial really does not want to play, this player will have to receive a heavy penalty.

Before that, Martial had publicly announced his intention to leave. Man United is also ready to meet, but the destination of the player born in 1995 can only be a team outside of England.

According to journalist Romano, Sevilla, Barcelona and Juventus are all keeping an eye on Martial. However, these 3 clubs have not been able to reach an agreement with MU. The Manchester red shirt team wants to sell Martial permanently, or at least let him leave on loan with the condition that the partner pays the fee and pays the entire salary of the 27-year-old player.

Also in the latest press conference, coach Rangnick revealed that Paul Pogba has returned to training. The French midfielder has a muscle injury and has not played for MU since the 2-2 draw against Atalanta in the Champions League in November 2021.

“What I see in Pogba, both physically and mentally, confirms that he is a very promising player. I talked for more than an hour with Pogba after training. He committed to give his best. for the club, at least until the end of this season,” said the interim coach of MU.

On the morning of January 20, MU will have a trip to the yard of Brentford. Cristiano Ronaldo is back from a minor injury. The British press confirmed that Martial was also in the squad to march to West London. Jesse Lingard left open the possibility of playing due to an ankle problem.

MU is 7th with 32 points, 5 points behind West Ham’s 4th place but played 2 games less. However, the chances of the “Red Devils” entering the Champions League group are still quite low, because the two opponents above them, Arsenal (35 points) and Tottenham (33 points), also have 2 and 4 matches, respectively. .
