Man United's Herrera not giving up on top-four finish

Adjust Comment Print

Manchester United star Martial has fallen down Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Old Trafford pecking order in recent times, with the France worldwide stuck in a rut.

McTominay was one of few United players to emerge with credit from Sunday's abject 1-1 draw at relegated Huddersfield, which consigned Solskjaer's side to the Europa League next season.

Not only that, the lack of Champions League football means that Pogba is also one of the players in the squad to suffer a considerable pay cut next season.

The 22-year-old Scotland star scored for United and played with industry and objective throughout, while the rest of Solskjaer's players failed to match his desire and work-rate. Then you get the right spirit in the dressing room.

In January Martial signed a new contract at United that runs until the summer of 2024.

Another day. Another update on Paul Pogba's future.

"I can't talk about individuals now but there's a chance you've seen the last of (some) players", he said, as quoted by talkSPORT.

Despite interest from top European clubs, Solskjaer and his assistants are upbeat Martial can return a better player, but must be ready to prove he is focused going forward. "I've never not liked a Manchester United team, I've always thought the team can win, the team can lose, the team can draw, but I really struggle with this team. They're just bad. They're a despondent group of people", said former United captain Gary Neville on Sky Sports.

He ranted: "Watch this Huddersfield team, they haven't got the quality".

While the Premier League title race has been contested by two thoroughbreds the battle to finish third and fourth has descended into a demolition derby in which Chelsea emerged from the wreckage to seal a top-four finish on Sunday.

Four losses in their last six league games left United hoping for their rivals to lose points but Chelsea sealed their place in the top four this weekend while Tottenham Hotspur are all but assured of the final spot.
