Paul Scholes explains exactly why Anthony Martial needs to play under Mauricio Pochettino thai sbo He clearly isn't convinced about the man management methods being employed by United at the moment. Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has spoken out in support of Anthony Martial at the end of a frustrating season for the Frenchman. Jose Mourinho has been critical of the forward throughout his reign as manager and last season called out the 22-year-old after reports emerged about a loan move away from Old Trafford.
"I know he's a top talent, but he needs to listen to me, not his agent," said the former Chelsea manager in December 2016. "He needs to listen to me in training, where I try to improve the players. "I knew that Mkhitaryan was a top talent and I was not playing him. Anthony needs to listen to me and not listen to his agent. He has to listen to me in training every day. Every feedback I give to players, I give to improve them as player."
In January 2018, United swapped Mkhitaryan for Alexis Sanchez, a player who has only increased the competition in Martial's favoured position out on the left. Speaking as a pundit on BT Sport's coverage of the FA Cup final, Scholes suggested that the the problem did not lie with the player. "Martial's a really good talent," said Scholes. "I think he needs a bit of love, he needs an arm around him." thai sbo
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has become one of the most admired managers in the Premier League in recent years for his work at Southampton in developing the likes of Adam Lallana and as the coach who has lead Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Harry Kane to three consecutive top four finishes. He has been praised for bringing through youngsters and helping them to reach their full potential - an approach that could benefit Martial if the Frenchman could escape Manchester for a fresh start at Hotspur Way this summer. Spurs have been named as a potential destination for the young winger if he were to become available in the transfer market although the costs of any deal would likely be prohibitive.
According to Scholes, Martial would be worth the outlay. "Every time he comes on he impresses me. He's a player I’d like to have in my team," said the retired United midfielder. "I just hope he's not one of those that leaves and then we see the best of them." It's been a good year for former Mourinho outcasts. Mohamed Salah set new records for goals scored in a Premier League season with Liverpool while Kevin De Bruyne inspired Manchester City to the title, securing their trophy with a final tally of 100 points. thai sbo
