Manchester United 1-1 Club America: Juan Mata goal earns friendly draw

And United team-mate Ander Herrera believes Martial, who impressed in United's 1-1 draw with Club America on the opening game of their U.S. tour in Phoenix, has the ability to become one of the world's elite players.

"Also, he's defensively poor - especially in a (Jose) Mourinho team where he likes his wide players to do a job".

That first season was under the stewardship of Louis van Gaal, but the arrival of Jose Mourinho at the club in 2016 saw a downturn in Martial's form.

It was set up in part by 18-year-old Dutchman Tahith Chong, making his first senior appearance, with a fantastic cross from the right. The 22-year-old didn't perform all that well either when he started for us and his agent had stated that the player would like to ply his trade elsewhere. In an interview in June, Lamboley said "After thinking about all the possibilities and settings, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United".

"But for me, I don't care too much about the captaincy, I care more about the life in the dressing room and the leaders in the dressing room".

"However I can tell you that without the unconditional support of the fans, Anthony would already have asked to leave Manchester United".

The administrative issue was assumed to be a problem with his visa after he accepted a 16-month suspended prison sentence in Spain earlier this year over a tax issue.

However, it is still understandable since they are missing a host of first-team players.

"The captain was Valencia last season, and I think he's going to be the captain", Mourinho said, following the 1-1 draw against Club America in Arizona.

'Anthony has the choice, I can not say anything on the subject at the moment but you think that from the moment a player like Anthony is on the market a lot of clubs are interested.
