The Frenchman was replaced in the second-half having made very little impact on the game with coming on for him after 61 minutes.

During the match on Tyneside, Erik ten Hag was seen shouting at his striker seemingly over his failure to track back – with Martial arguing back.

Martial is closing in on 10 years at Old Trafford but former United defender Paul Parker has lost patience with the player.

He told : ‘I hope that his situation has gotten worse after that argument. I really hope so, because it’s getting embarrassing now.

‘He has had his opportunities to go and prove himself at Sevilla. He came back and has been given so many chances. He hasn’t grabbed the chance, it’s incredible. He is not showing any enthusiasm.

‘There is this phrase, that if someone looks like him, they have a face like a slapped arse. I just look at him sometimes and believe he should sit at a table in Las Vegas, because he looks like a gambler. We don´t know if he is enjoying himself, you just don´t know.’

but Parker believes it should signal the end of his time at the club.

‘He disrespected his boss. You can’t do that, no matter what the argument was,’ Parker continued.

‘As far as I’m concerned, that should be his last game for Man United. Next time Rasmus Hojlund can’t play, they should play the reserve goalkeeper ahead of Martial.

‘He would do a better job than Martial. He doesn’t enjoy being at Man United. He doesn’t care about his team-mates and he makes them into bad players, because he don´t care.’
