Martial denies Ralf Rangnick’s claim he refused to play

Anthony Martial has refuted Ralf Rangnick’s claim that the forward refused to play for Manchester United.

Rangnick said Martial “didn’t want to be in the squad” after United only named eight substitutes with two goalkeepers among them for the 2-2 draw at Aston Villa on Saturday,

Martial wants to leave United this month and has not featured since a 3-2 win over Arsenal on December 2, but the 26-year-old insisted he was available for selection.

“I will never refuse to play a match for Man United, Martial said on Instagram.

“I’ve been here for seven years and I never disrespected and I never will disrespect the club and the fans.
