Jose Mourinho sends warning to Anthony Martial after Man United’s win over Everton

Jose Mourinho has warned Anthony Martial about having an entourage which ‘supports his weaknesses’ following Manchester United’s win over Everton.
Martial was named man of the match for his display at Old Trafford as he threatened throughout and scored a sublime goal in the second half to double United’s lead.

Martial’s agent claimed the French forward wanted to leave United in the summer but the 22-year-old has since been in talks over a contract extension.
Mourinho and Martial have fallen out on more than one occasion during their time together, but the United manager has suggested that it is the Frenchman’s camp who are at fault for the player’s inconsistent performances.
Asked about Martial’s performance against Everton, Mourinho replied: ‘He has the same natural talents he had one or two years ago but he is improving the way he thinks of football and improving his role in the team. I am happy with boys who are improving.

‘It is difficult periods for them and for me because I want more from them but I am really happy with Anthony.
‘Everton is not on paper a top-four side, but they are a team capable of coming here to fight for a result the way they did. Every match is difficult.
‘In terms of my approach to my young players, that’s the way I am.
‘In the end, you have the rewards of that hard work if they don’t give up and they don’t have an entourage who supports their weaknesses.
‘Luke Shaw was strong and these people were good to him and now Anthony is becoming a better player.’
