Anthony Martial is not good enough for Premier League giants Manchester United, according to former England, Everton and Bolton head-coach Sam Allardyce.
French forward was handed his first start of the new campaign against Brighton and Howe Albion after Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez was ruled out from Injury.
However, France forward has failed to justify the lifeline handed to him by the Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho and was largely anonymous before being substituted later in the game.
The 22-year-old forward’s form has dipped under Portuguese manager and he is believed to want to leave the Red Devils.
And Allardyce feels Frenchman has not improved at Old Trafford and says Mourinho is not to the one who should be blamed for his failure.
“You’d look at Louis van Gaal who brought in Martial and it doesn’t matter who the manager is, Martial isn’t good enough for Manchester United,” he told beIN Sports.
“If you want to be super critical and look at the players he’s got. He is not the player they thought they were getting.
“There was a chance where you get a very big young talent for £50million.
“But we are in his third season and he is no better than when he first came. “He should have progressed. He should be as good as Leroy Sane and people like that. That’s not Jose’s fault.”
