Ralf Rangnick gave the following statement in post match interview:

“Yes, he didn’t want to be in the squad. He would have been in the squad normally but he didn’t want to and that was the reason why he didn’t travel with us yesterday.”

Martial countered the manager's statement on his Instagram story.

“I will never refuse to play a match for Man United. I’ve been here for 7 years and I never disrespected and never will disrespect the club and the fans.”


Martial joined United in 2015 from Monaco for a hefty fee of £58 million. It is clear to all that Martial proved to be a failure in Manchester. He only had two good seasons from seven years at United. At present, Martial is one of the highest earners at the club, taking home £150,000 per week. The departure time of Martial has finally came.
