Liverpool great Barnes says Martial should leave Man Utd

Liverpool great John Barnes says Anthony Martial should leave Manchester United.

Martial has struggled this season, scoring just four Premier League goals, and has been dropped by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer of late.

Barnes told 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."
