Ralf Rangnick Told To Immediately Sell Manchester United Star Before He Gets Him The 'Sack'
| Last updated
Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has been told to sell Anthony Martial “as quickly” as he can before he ends up getting him the “sack.”
That is according to Simon Jordan, who claimed that Martial has the “heart the size of a pea” and failed to live up to his potential at Old Trafford.
Martial’s future has been plunged into doubt in recent weeks amid transfer speculation linking him with Barcelona, Newcastle, Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon.
The 26-year-old French forward, who is under contract with United until 2024, could be sold in January if the right offer is made.
Martial has managed 10 appearances across all competitions this season and scored only once for United.
The France international has not featured in Rangnick’s first three matches in charge of the Red Devils.
However, Jordan has now suggested that the United interim manager should show Martial the Old Trafford exit.
Speaking on talkSPORT, the former Crystal Palace chairman said: “Get the cab ready and put Martial in it as quickly as you possibly can and you’ve got an opportunity.

“Because I think Martial is one of those players that gets you the sack.
“I think he is the archetypal Manchester United player of the last half a decade that, on paper, looks a great player, got all the ability, but when it comes to it [he] has the heart the size of a pea.
“He wants to go, so good riddance if I’m United.”
United’s Premier League clash on Tuesday against Brentford was postponed due to an outbreak of COVID-19 at the club.
Rangnick’s men, who are one point outside of the top four, will now return to Premier League action on Saturday when they host Brighton at Old Trafford.
