Former Premier League player Jermain Jenas has said that United were wrong to sell Romelu Lukaku and should have sold Anthony Martial instead.
Lukaku joined Inter Milan for £73m in August before the season commenced. The duties of playing as the no.9 have now been passed down to Martial, who is currently nursing an injury.
Jenas, however, believes that the Frenchman should have been sold given his inconsistent performances.
“Since Martial has been at Manchester United, I would say he has a month and a half, two months a season then he goes absolutely missing.”
“You’ve got poor Marcus Rashford, who puts himself out there every single week and gives his all. We all know he’s not a goalscoring machine or that goal-scoring comes naturally to him.”
“He’s got other attributes to his game that are phenomenal that we see him produce for England on a regular basis.”
“He gets all this criticism thrown at him yet you’ve got players like Martial who just goes missing. You talk injuries but it happens every single season at United.”
“Why get rid of Lukaku when you’ve got someone like Martial who is doing that every week.”
“Just because he’s a younger player, or he’s more valuable? I’m questioning so many decisions that are being made.”
