Rumors pertaining to Anthony Martial’s future at Manchester United took an ugly turn on Saturday when the forward was dropped from the squad during the 1-1 draw against Stoke City. When his absence was questioned by the media, Jose Mourinho simply replied that “Martial was not selected.”
The Frenchman who landed at Old Trafford less than two years ago for £57 million was touted to be the young blood that United were looking for.
But Mourinho has given Martial just 9 appearances this season, making him unable to cement his spot in the regular line up. Which has in turn fueled the rumors of a sour relationship between the Portuguese and the Frenchman.
And majority of the big media houses took it one step further yesterday and reported that Martial had missed the training after a bust-up with the manager.
However, if a United fan’s pictures with Martial are to be believed, things could not be more further than the truth as contrary to media reports, Martial did attend United’s training session at Carrington yesterday.
