Anthony Martial has refused to comment on the recent speculations surrounding Louis van Gaal's future at Manchester United and the forward admitted that he is unsure whether Jose Mourinho will be at Old Trafford next season.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager has less than one year left on his contract with the 20-time English champions. However, the Red Devils' inconsistency in all competitions has raised questions over the Dutchman's future at the club beyond the end of the 2015/16 campaign.

United suffered a shock exit from the group stages of the Champions League, which forced them to settle for the Europa League. In the second tier of the European competition, they were eliminated by their arch-rivals Liverpool.

Mourinho, who was sacked from his job at Chelsea last December is in the pole position to replace Van Gaal at United in the summer. Martial has only positive comments about the ex-Netherlands coach after he gave the France international the much needed confidence in his debut season at the club.

"As long as the current coach is there, I don't think about it. If Mourinho must arrive, he will arrive. For the moment the coach is still there," Martial said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.

"Every coach has their good and bad sides. Van Gaal has given me a lot of confidence and I try hard to pay it back to him every day."

Martial scored the only goal in United's 1-0 victory over Everton in the last league tie on Sunday. With that goal, the Red Devils scored their 1000th Premier League goal at Old Trafford and by doing so, they became the first team to achieve that feat.
