Jose Mourinho does disservice to Rashford and Martial with press conference answers

Jose Mourinho does disservice to Rashford and Martial with press conference answers

An unhappy Martial has rejected a new contract offer from United as he seeks assurances from manager Jose Mourinho about his playing opportunities.

Reports emanating from France have suggested that Martial wants to leave Old Trafford because his opportunities to play have been significantly reduced since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in January.

Despite appearing in 97 games for Mourinho, Rashford has started just one league game in 2018 so far, while Martial has started just two of his side's last nine games.

But the Manchester United boss was blunt in his answers on Rashford and Martial. "Marcus Rashford is the player with the most appearances since I arrived at the club", Mourinho replied tersely.

Asked if he understands why there is concern over a lack of game time for Martial and Rashford ahead of the World Cup, Mourinho said: "It's the same answer". It would be awesome, also economically for the football clubs to have only 11 players and to always play with the same 11 and no injuries and no suspensions and no fatigue and nothing, it'd be better for everyone to have only 11 players.

However, Mourinho says the duo are part of his system but can not guarantee playing time to either of them.

However, Mourinho insists that he is surprised by their struggles, due to the quality and experience they have in their squad, and revealed that he expects a tough game this weekend.

"The same questions you are doing to me, you should do to every other manager because everyone has players in the same situation".

"So probably I would have to reduce and send some away".

And while it seems he would like to be involved and play as many minutes as possible, the 20-year-old is first and foremost a team player. "Obviously, to finish fourth, we need four or five points, but to finish second we need much more than that". "I try to raise the levels of training and I think I managed to do it because I'm really pleased with all these [last few] days".
