Man Utd boss Mourinho: Martial preseason must start again

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says Anthony Martial needs to begin his preseason all over again.

Mourinho says the only reason he has not joined the rest of the team so far is that his pre-season has just begun again.

“He had the first three or four days of training and the first couple of matches against the American team and the Mexican team where he played 40 or 50 minutes," the manager explained.

“He didn't have a pre-season, just three days of pre-season. He missed nine days of pre-season where no training, no football, absolutely nothing.

“If you are without nine days of pre-season without one minute of training or football, you go back and start with the other people. There is not a story."
