Man Utd legend: This player has the talent, but he needs to start performing

The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with Mourinho’s management in recent weeks, but one player has, as of yet, failed to improve under the Portuguese boss…

The Red Devils were struggling earlier in the season, with a few of the Man Utd fans in the Tavern even calling for Mourinho to be sacked, but the manager has pushed on and turned his season around – and whilst a title challenge is unlikely – anything can happen if their fine form continues.

However, whilst many players within the Man Utd squad have improved, such as Wayne Rooney and Marcos Rojo, one player has continued to struggle.

Anthony Martial was a revelation within the Man Utd first team last season, having scored 11 Premier League goals in his debut campaign in England, and many expected him to continue in that vein this season.

However, in reality, the Frenchman has really struggled – and so far has picked up just 2 goals under Jose Mourinho.  His form has, in many ways, remained a mystery – with nobody able to uncover why he has struggled.

Now, Man Utd legend Gary Neville has had his say on the matter – and he is hoping for better things from Martial.

Taking to Twitter, he said: “He’s only achieving a very small part of his potential. He ranges from sensational to disinterested . Let’s hope he gets going now!”.

He continued: “He has the talent to become a very special player. He needs to show his love for the game and display that in his performances”.

The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for the Frenchman to seriously turn his game around, and this endorsement from Neville could be just what he needs to add a bit of confidence to his game. As Neville has noted, Martial clearly has the quality so succeed – but he just needs to put it into practice.

Last season, Martial was unplayable at points – as the below video shows…
