Mourinho has lost patience with a United forward

Manchester United manager has lost patience with forward Anthony Martial over his poor performances, according to the Express.

Martial's only appearance this season came in United's 3-2 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion in August.

Mourinho had wanted to sell the Frenchman during the last summer transfer window, but the move was blocked by the United hierarchy because of their belief that the player can still meet expectations at Old Trafford.

With the Martial not playing regularly for United, the player may be forced to seek a move elsewhere in order to save his career.

The 22-year-old was left out of France's World Cup winning squad, and if things continue like this for him, his future international career will not be a reality.

Martial has shown potential for United, but he needs the kind of guidance Cristiano Ronaldo got when he was still an upcoming player under Sir Alex Ferguson.

United return to Premier League action this weekend, facing Watford in the late game on Saturday.
