Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has held close discussions with Anthony Martial due to his dip in form.
The French striker has continually struggled on the pitch as a result of his personal relationship problems following his separation from Samantha Jacquelinet who has went public to talk about the 20-year old striker’s flirty nature.
According to reliable reports, the Portuguese told martial to deal with relationship problems and raise his game or face the axe.
A United source said: “Standards have been raised under Jose and he wants his players to be focused on United.
“Martial is going through a tough time off the pitch, but it’s down to him to sort it out. The manager’s made him well aware of that.”
Martial who has been deployed on the left wing believes his best position is down the middle which is currently being occupied by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Although he prefers to play through the middle, he has accepted he has no choice but to play out wide after Ibrahimovic’s stunning start to life at Old Trafford Stadium.
