Dwight Yorke warns Manchester United striker Anthony Martial that he needs to "buckle down" if he is to have a future at the club.

Former Manchester United forward Dwight Yorke has given his thoughts on Anthony Martial, sending the striker a warning to "buckle down" at the club.

Yorke is a former teammate of current Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and it is clear that he wants to see more from the French attacker in the coming months.

"When you play for this club and you're not doing the business and your form dips for whatever reason you're going to be under scrutiny. He's got to buckle down really if he has a future at this football club," Yorke told Goal.

"He's undoubtedly got immense talent and all the attributes we like to see in an attacking player and there's no question he can be that vital player for us, but at the moment he's not in the squad and he's got to find a way to get back into the team."

"He's been a bit of a mixed bag to be fair. He had that one season when he was outstanding and he looked a serious threat but I think he's been unfairly treated in some way because I think that No.9 role is a specialist role and you have to play that position week in, week out, to get familiarised with it.

"When he first started off he started off on the left and then the right so he's not really settled that much. He needs to be playing week in week out to really see the best of him. You can't give him 10 or 20 minutes and expect him to be the finished article, it just doesn't happen."

Martial did manage to find the back of the net in Manchester United's most recent outing - a 1-1 draw with Everton last weekend.
