Because the autothrust system will not allow the speed to decrease below the manoeuvring speed, if you keep the speed managed.

If you have the flaps stuck at 1+f for example, you'll need flap lever position 2 for landing. (to get the slats extended in position 2) The calculated Vapp will be lower than the manoeuvring speed, so it needs to be selected.
