Pat Nevin has told Jose Mourinho that he has been playing Anthony Martial out of position at Manchester United.

The 22-year-old’s future has become something of a source of speculation in recent months due to his lack of playing time at Old Trafford under the Portuguese coach.

Martial burst onto the scene when he signed for the Red Devils from Monaco under Louis van Gaal but he struggled to hold down a starting spot in Mourinho’s first team last season.

The France international missed out on a place in his national team’s World Cup squad this summer due to his lack of playing time at Old Trafford this season.

And former Chelsea FC star Nevin feels that the attacker has been deployed out of position by Mourinho at Old Trafford recently.

Speaking to Irish radio station Newstalk, Nevin said:

Manchester United ended up in second place in the Premier League table last season as they seek to try and win the title next term.

The Red Devils finished the season without a trophy after they were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley last month.
