Miami, Aug 1: Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho has no idea when French forward Anthony Martial will join the squad for the English Premier League season.

Asked if Martial would be part of his squad for Sunday’s game against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena — five days before the start of the EPL season — Mourinho was quoted as saying by BBC: “I don’t know.” He was speaking after United’s 2-1 win over Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup.
Goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera earned United a first 90-minute win of their United States trip. Martial had left the tour last week to be at the birth of his daughter.

Mourinho questioned why the France international did not return for Saturday’s match which the United lost 1-4 to Liverpool. (IANS)
