John Barnes tells Manchester United striker to leave Manchester United

Liverpool legend John Barnes has urged Manchester United striker Anthony Martial to leave Old Trafford if he continues to get limited playing time.

The Frenchman has struggled in front of goal this season, scoring just four Premier League goals.

Barnes claims Martial is not a centre-forward, but a winger, but has backed the player to leave the Theatre of Dreams to regular playing time.

This is what Barnes said, speaking to BonusCodeBets:

“Anthony Martial has never been a centre forward, despite Manchester United playing him there – if he can’t get a place in the starting team in his preferred wide position, following the emergence of Mason Greenwood, then maybe it is time for him to leave Manchester United.

“Lots of clubs nowadays have benches full of superstar players, who are happy to be there, but I don’t know if Martial is one of those players, or what Manchester United’s intentions are with him, but I would suggest a change could be good for both him and the club if they aren’t getting what they want from him playing there.”
