Martial urged to quit United.
Robert Pires has urged Anthony Martial to leave Manchester United if he cannot be promised first-team football.
Speaking to Bwin, he said: “Martial is not in a good position currently and it can’t be allowed to continue. Martial is a top young player and he isn’t comfortable not playing regularly.
“He had a difficult season, with a lot of time on the bench, and it will be important now to talk to Mourinho and find out if he is a first-choice player or not for the new season.
“If he can’t be assured first-team football, he might need to move on.
“Alexis Sanchez and Martial both play in the same position, and the club obviously invested a lot of money in Sanchez so there might be greater pressure to play him. Martial will need to move on to play regular football if that’s the case.”
