Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to have grown increasingly ‘exasperated’ by the attitude of Anthony Martial.
The Frenchman was missing from Manchester United’s squad which drew 1-1 at Huddersfield on Sunday, with Solskjaer reportedly upset with the 23-year-old for barely joining in the pre-match warm-up against Chelsea last weekend having been named as a substitute.
Solskjaer had earlier granted Martial permission to return to France following the game for family reasons, but the winger’s lack of interest having been named on the bench is said to have angered the United boss.
According to the Daily Mail Martial now faces a fight to convince Solskjaer he has a long-term future at Old Trafford, with the Norwegian set to significantly overhaul his squad in this summer’s transfer window.
Former boss Jose Mourinho has previously questioned Martial’s attitude, the Portuguese wanting to sell the former Monaco forward before the move was blocked by United chief Ed Woodward.
Woodward would likely still oppose the sale of Martial, though Solskjaer will demand improvement from the youngster if he wishes to remain at Old Trafford.
