Mourinho Warns Martial Against Listening To His Agent

Jose Mourinho has warned Anthony Martial to ignore his agent and focus on his Manchester United stay.

Martial seized his opportunity in the side against Middlesbrough on Saturday, scoring the first in a two-minute, two-goal turnaround that saw off Aitor Karanka’s men 2-1 late on at Old Trafford.

The France international has been unstable in the Mourinho’s team this season and the striker’s agent, Philippe Lamboley, think it’s time for his client to move on with Sevilla believed to be interested in a loan deal.

But Mourinho says Martial should pay more attention to him if he wants to become a star, citing Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s turnaround from outcast to key player as proof that the Portuguese’s way is best.

His words “He played, he created, he scored, he fought. I think he was very positive.

“I know that he is a top talent. I knew Mkhitaryan was a top talent and I was not playing him.

“In this moment he plays even left-back when the team is winning and needs to defend with a little bit more balance.

“So Anthony has to listen to me and not listen to his agent. He has to listen to me.

“He has to listen to me in training every day and in every feedback I give to try to improve players.

“But the Mkhitaryan process I was having almost every day Mkhitaryan’s agent calling me and saying Mkhitaryan with you will be a better player, keep going.

“And with Martial every day I read the newspaper: Martial goes to Sevilla, Martial goes on loan, Martial is not happy.

“Martial has to listen to me. He’s a player with amazing conditions to be a top player.”
