What’s the story?
In case you didn’t know…
The war of words between Mourinho and Martial existed since the time of the pre-season itself with the Frenchman missing crucial practice sessions due to personal reasons culminating in Jose Mourinho questioning his commitment and desire.
As Manchester United signed Alexis Sanchez last season in January, Martial’s game time was cut short and he was repeatedly left on the bench with a limited role to play, provoking strong rumours of him leaving in the summer for Juventus and that move did not unfold.
However in the recent weeks, the attacker’s game-time has risen and he finds himself to be in a promising form.
The heart of the matter
Anthony Martial is one of the eleven Manchester United players whose contract expires in 2019 and Manchester United cannot afford to let go of a rising sensation such as him. Tumultuous relationship with Jose Mourinho did spark rumours of him leaving but after the victory at Everton,
” At the moment, he is playing very well ( Martial ). Even if he doesn’t score, to create what he is creating, it is a solid performance for the team.”
The Frenchman’s and the fans have a love affair and his interaction with them at the Stamford Bridge last week proved it. As things are getting better now with the manager, Manchester United and their fans can be hopeful of him signing a new five-year contract.
