London [U.K], Apr 19 (ANI): Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has issued a warning to Anthony Martial, saying that the striker must start doing as he is told if he wants to have a future at Old Trafford.
Martial has only started one of United's last eight games and was even dropped from the Red Devils' squad for their 2-0 win against Chelsea on Sunday.
The French international has played for full 90 minutes in just three Premier League games this season, and Mourinho has now told Martial to find greater consistency if he wants to make most of his potential at United.
"We have been together for almost 10 months. The same way I know the players so much better now, the players should know me also much better now," goal.com quoted Mourinho as saying.
"That's why Marcus Rashford, even without scoring goals, was always a player that I trust, always a player that I played, always a player that I support. Because he was always coming in the direction of what I want from a Manchester United player," he added.
The Portuguese manager stressed that although Martial is a player with great potential, it is high time for the striker to start adapting to what he likes.
"Do I think Anthony is a player with great potential? Yes, I think. Do I think he can play successfully for me? Yes, I think. But he needs to give me things that I like very much," he added.
Insisting that there must be no complacency amongst his players, Mourinho also revealed that Sergio Romero would start in goal, ahead of David De Gea.
"At a big club like Manchester United when you start the Europa League you probably don't have motivation that high, but at this stage it must be high.Romero is not my goalkeeper for the Europa League. He is my goalkeeper for tomorrow. He is the priority for the Europa League, but we have situations for David De Gea to play," Mourinho added.
United are slated to take on Anderlecht in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final clash at Old Trafford on April 21. (ANI)
