Former Crystal Palace Chairman, Simon Jordan, has warned Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, that striker Anthony Martial will get him sacked from the club if he remain as a regular part of his team this season.
Jordan mentioned this after Man United’s away Premier League fixture with league leaders Liverpool on January 17, 2021,

However, Anthony Martial has had a difficult first half of the season, as he has scored just two goals after 12 league appearances being the main central striker for the club.
“Man United fans are piling in on me, saying ‘you’ve got this agenda against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’,” Jordan said on talkSPORT.
“It’s not an agenda, it’s calling out excellence and saying ‘can you really subscribe to the fact that anytime soon this guy, and this group of players…’ – because some of those players aren’t fit for purpose, Anthony Martial will get you sacked if you have him regularly in your side because he’s not good enough and he’s lightweight.
“You look at this and say ‘is he really going to bridge the gap in the cometh the hour, cometh the man moment against [Jurgen] Klopp and against [Pep] Guardiola?’
“He may well do it, he may well beat Klopp next week. I don’t think he will but I don’t take any satisfaction, I don’t sit there wanting this man out of a job.
“I don’t have an agenda, I’m just calling it as I see it. If you want to call it an agenda, that’s peoples perspectives.”
