He couldn't cement a place under this manager because the play style is completely different. Was Martial given the chance to be a ST under Jose?He couldn't cement his place under a manager, that's not a reason for more time or faith. Rojo and Lukaku played under Mourinho and it's not an excuse for them. Shaw is a player people say we need to upgrade on, again he was under Mourinho. Why isn't it the same excuses for them?
Again I'm not saying he needs to go, I'm saying he should be in the same boat as players like Shaw where we know it's somewhere we need to look at upgrading rather than waiting for someone to come good after 5 years. On top of that he's in a position with very little competition so we know we need to bring someone in there.
Jose has a clear idea of what striker he wants, you can go have a look at every team he has managed, he like a hold up play striker, someone who is big. Drogba, Lukaku, Milito all are Jose players so he can play the long ball to them and play off them.
I guess you should include Rashford in there too because he didnt nail down a place under Jose and everytime Jose had a interview where Lukaku is not available he kept saying I have no other player to play there etc.
In regards to Shaw, it's not exactly a position we need to improve on urgently. So he isnt in the same boat. Once he gets some sort of fitness / form hes always looked decent.
