United manager Pep Clotet reiterated chairman Darryl Eales’s comments to a fans’ forum on Wednesday night and was pleased with the 26-year-old’s efforts.

He said: “The same situation applies to what the chairman said on Wednesday – Marvin is not for sale.

“Apart from that I’m very happy with his performance, his attitude and his commitment.

“He worked hard for his teammates and it was a tough game for him in the first half.

“When the game opened up in the second half he gave a glimpse of what he can do and he was fantastic going forward as well.”
