The French striker made MU fans angry when he was not on the list of matches against Aston Villa even though he did not have physical problems.

In the post-match press conference, coach Ralf Rangnick revealed the reason why Anthony Martial was not on the guest list against Aston Villa. “Martial didn’t want to be in the squad,” Rangnick said. “He was supposed to be on the list but Martial didn’t want it. That’s why he didn’t come here with the team.”

Immediately after this statement of coach Rangnick, Martial received fierce criticism from MU fans. Writing on his personal account, the striker born in 1995 quickly explained: “I never refuse to play for MU. I have not and will never disrespect MU fans after 7 years of playing here. “.

Martial’s MU got off to a good start against Aston Villa when he took the lead in the 6th minute thanks to Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese star continued to score in the 67th minute to make it 2-0. However, the “Red Devils” could not keep the advantage in the second half of the match when the substitute substitute for Aston Villa, Philippe Coutinho, shone with a goal and an assist.

In this match, MU had to launch young player Anthony Elanga when Marcus Rashford and Cristiano Ronaldo could not play because of injury. Martial’s future at Old Trafford is becoming murky when the French striker was approved to ask to leave but no club can afford a salary of up to £ 250,000 / week.

Sevilla is a club that is said to want Martial, but MU and the Spanish team have not found a common voice. This season, Martial has only played 359 minutes for MU in all competitions and has only 1 goal.
