Paul Parker has said that Manchester United stars, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial do not deserve a place in Ralf Rangnick’s XI because they don’t work hard enough for the team.
Parker wondered why Martial and Rashford should start a game ahead of Mason Greenwood.
Rashford has started just three times for United so far this season, after missing the start of the campaign to shoulder surgery.
The England international has made two appearances in the last two league games for United, a 45-minute play in the 4-1 defeat to Watford and a 77th minutes substitue in the Red Devils’ 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Sunday.
Martial on the other hand has also struggled for game time, starting just twice in United’s opening 12 top flight matches.
And United hero, Parker says both players do not deserve a place in the lineup unless they improve their work rate at the club.
“You’ve got a young Mason Greenwood, being a young lad you wonder where his head is at,” he told Talk Of The Devils.
“He was a key player a few weeks back, getting a good rapport at the back end of last season with Cavani and you could see Ronaldo was respecting what he was trying to achieve.
“I would play Greenwood in front of Rashford all day long. I’m just thinking why Rashford gets so much game time.
“You’re looking at it and there is nothing coming out of it to be perfectly honest. How does Martial get the game time in Villarreal, I really don’t know. It seems strange.
“Okay, if you have a bad game you have a bad game. But when you see players who don’t want to work hard that is when questions need to be asked and Martial doesn’t want to work hard. Rashford doesn’t want to work hard. He doesn’t really want to.”
