Former top-flight striker says United should have replaced THIS player two years ago

A former striker Alan Mclnally has stated that Manchester United should have replaced France international striker, Anthony Martial, two years ago as he has never been a top-end striker for them.

The former Monaco forward has not found the back of the net so far this season and c on boast of only two goals to his name from the 16 top-flight games he has played a part in.

Mclnally insists the Red Devils should have replaced him because he has failed to improve as the top-end player they needed him to be, having been on the books at Old Trafford since the summer of 2015.

Asked when Manchester United should think away from Martial as their number 9, Mclnally told Footy Accumulators: “That was two years ago, that point.

“He has had two years at Manchester United he should never have had; I am sorry he has been so poor.

“I have been in hundreds of dressing rooms, and by the way he could not have played in any football teams I played in and I include Ayr United in that, he is not good enough, I am serious, he could not play in any teams that I played in.

“I don’t see him replacing anybody I played with, genuinely.

“Listen, he is a good player, good for Manchester United is probably not enough, it is as simple as that.

“You are talking top-end where you expect to be and he, as good a player as a lot of people think he is, I don’t think he is good enough for Manchester United, I never genuinely have.

“He has shown us flashes of wonderful football, but at Manchester United, a flash is not enough, it is simply not enough.”

Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also has Edinson Cavani at his disposal and it remains to be seen whether the Uruguayan will displace Martial as the lead striker for the remainder of the season.

Anthony Martial will still get his chance as Edison Cavani will not be at the Old Trafford for a longer period because of his age.

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
