Dwight Yorke gives his thoughts on struggling Anthony Martial

Anthony Martial needs to fight for his place at Manchester United.

Man United striker Anthony Martial has been struggling for form since the start of last season and his future with the club looks very uncertain.

According to reports, Man United would be tempted to sell him in the January transfer window.

Arsenal legend Dwight Yorke has suggested the Frenchman to ‘buckle down’ and find a way to get back to the first team.

“When you play for this club and you’re not doing the business and your form dips for whatever reason you’re going to be under scrutiny. He’s got to buckle down really if he has a future at this football club,” Yorke told Goal.

“He’s undoubtedly got immense talent and all the attributes we like to see in an attacking player and there’s no question he can be that vital player for us, but at the moment he’s not in the squad and he’s got to find a way to get back into the team.”

“He’s been a bit of a mixed bag to be fair. He had that one season when he was outstanding and he looked a serious threat but I think he’s been unfairly treated in some way because I think that No.9 role is a specialist role and you have to play that position week in, week out, to get familiarised with it.

“When he first started off he started off on the left and then the right so he’s not really settled that much. He needs to be playing week in week out to really see the best of him. You can’t give him 10 or 20 minutes and expect him to be the finished article, it just doesn’t happen.”
