He is not going to get any sympathy from the Man Utd fans in the Football Transfer Tavern…
Whilst Jose Mourinho is renowned in the Tavern for overachieving with his often limited playing squads – there has been one player that has been markedly absent from the spotlight so far this season.
Despite a stellar first campaign in England, Anthony Martial has struggled thus far – and resultantly has had to settle for a bit-part role under Jose Mourinho.
However, as with any lack of form there is almost always a root cause; and Anthony Martial’s story appears no different.
As per the Daily Mail, Manchester United are reportedly concerned that Martial’s poor form could be down to a recent split with his girlfriend, with whom he has a daughter.
The pair reportedly split earlier this year, and Martial’s form has subsequently and gradually gotten worse since that happened.
However – it’s not all bad news for the Man Utd fans in the Football Transfer Tavern.
Our landlord thinks his recent goal against Stoke could prove to be a turning point in the Frenchman’s season – and he thinks that Martial could kick on and make a real go of it this year.
Mourinho will no doubt be counting on Martial, given the lack of form of some of his more regular stars.
Since his arrival in Manchester, Martial has bagged 11 Premier League goals.
