‘He’s not good enough!’ – Schmeichel tells Erik ten Hag not to start Man Utd star vs Chelsea
Martial was a second-half substitution against West Ham on Sunday night, but he had no impact as United lost 1-0.
The 27-year-old had a chance to score his sixth league goal of the year, but Lukasz Fabianski of the Hammers denied him in stoppage time.
Martial was expected to be transferred last summer after spending the second half of the previous campaign on loan at Sevilla, but Ten Hag made the decision to keep the Frenchman at Old Trafford.
Ten Hag might experience another problem with Martial this summer, and legendary Premier League player Shearer thinks Manchester United ought to think about selling.
The team claims that Anthony Martial has spent enough time at Manchester United. Shearer made a statement on Premier League Productions after West Ham’s significant win.
You don’t need to make any significant decisions regarding him because, in my opinion, they either have been made or ought to have been made.
He has had his fair share of opportunities and has been there long enough. He is not capable of leading Manchester United to their desired destination.
If he had enough talent, he would be starting games frequently and scoring goals. He’s got his shot, and in my perspective, it didn’t work out for him.
Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright said, “With all due respect to Martial, if you’ve got Wout Weghorst starting in front of you, you’ve got a problem.”
With their first season under Ten Hag, Manchester United has seen success, taking home the EFL Cup earlier this year and finishing in the top four.
With back-to-back Premier League losses and a shocking Europa League loss to Sevilla, the Red Devils are faltering as the season draws to a close.
With four games left, Manchester United is one point ahead of Liverpool in fourth place and will face Wolves the following weekend at Old Trafford.
After United’s defeat to West Ham, Ten Hag said, “I think the first half was a decent performance, and the second half was below our standards.”
We played fantastic football in the first half and could have taken the lead, but one mistake and the consequences follow. Everything is within our grasp, but we must rest and recharge in order to make the most of this week.
Ten Hag stated of United’s failure to score for the second time in four days, “Of course it’s sad, we created and we had the game in our hands.” In front of the goal, we must be more methodical.
