Manchester United, an English Premier League club, has stated that midfielder Anthony Martial is poised to depart the club, causing further issues between the Manchester United players and the club's new manager, Ralf Rangnick.
Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick said that the French international declined to go with the team for their Premier League match against Aston Villa on Sunday, January 15, in which United was held to a 2-2 draw by the Villa side.
Rangnick added that there was no other reason for Martial to skip the squad's trip to Villa than the fact that he did not want to, and that was the only reason for his absence.
Later, though, the French international went to his social media account to respond to Rangnick's comments. Martial added that he has never refused to play for Manchester United and that he will never betray the club or its supporters.
Despite Martial's and United's comments, there is still no clear reason why the Manchester United player did not travel with the club ahead of their match against Villa.
