- Jose Mourinho wants Anthony Martial to listen to his advice and not of his agent
- The striker is considering leaving Old Trafford in January 2017
After scoring an incredible goal against Middlesbrough on Saturday, December 31, 2016, Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho has advised Anthony Martial to stay at the club and fight for his place.
This term, the French striker has struggled for playing times under Jose Mourinho which led to his agent Philippe Lamboley suggesting he could be heading to Sevilla on loan in January 2017.
The Portuguese has now explained that it would be good for the 21-year-old forward to listen to him and shun any advise from his agent who wants him to leave Old Trafford.

''Anthony needs to listen to me and not his agent because I am his coach, and he has to do what I want him to do in training.
''Everyday I read the newspaper and read about him going to Sevilla, but I want him to stay here and fight for his place,'' Mourinho explained.
Following his £36 million move from Monaco, Anthony Martial was Manchester United last season's top scorer in the Premier League with 17 goals.
