Sevilla coach Julio Lopetegui was alerted when he replaced Martial on his disappointing debut.The Frenchman reportedly struggled to leave Old Trafford last month and appears to be facing an uphill battle to escalate.Sevilla dropped valuable points on Saturday to draw level with Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.At the moment, Roberto Lopetegui’s side are Real’s closest challengers, but a disappointing second-half goalless draw with Osasuna left them three points behind having played a game more.Part of the reason for Sevilla’s lack of threat was a disappointing debut for Martial, who was substituted with 15 minutes remaining.Following the 26-year-old’s arrival from Manchester United with high expectations and huge sums of money invested in him, Lopetegui made no secret of his words after the final whistle.”He has to give us more,” Mr Lopetegui said.”It was his first game and it was not easy to adapt.””He comes with some baggage because he has hardly played.””He has to get up to speed bit by bit.”In January, United manager Michael Rangnick publicly confirmed martial’s desire to play elsewhere, but the German insisted they would only agree to his departure if it benefited the club.Sevilla’s initial offer of a loan was subsequently rejected and they returned with an agreement to pay him £150,000 a week.Mathieu’s arrival in Spain has sparked anticipation among fans, with sevilla’s statement on social media referring to the striker’s famous debut goal for the Red Devils.However, the move was always going to be a gamble, considering he has scored just once in eight Premier League games this season.
