Wales manager and Manchester United legend, Ryan Giggs has blasted Anthony Martial for his performance in Mufc’s recent 1-1 draw vs Everton on Sunday.
The Frenchman was the striker for Man United but he looked off and could only get one shot off target throughout the match.
While admitting that Martial is definitely capable of scoring goals, Ryan was not happy with Martial’s lack of energy and desire vs Everton.
His words, “He is talented, and he’s not a bad kid, but the problem he has is that he looks lethargic all the time. He looks casual, as if he’s not bothered,”
“When it comes off, and he’s doing brilliant things, you say it just comes naturally. But when it’s not, you think: he’s not running, he’s not trying, he’s not working hard enough, he’s not holding the ball up.
“So in my eyes he has to try extra hard because of his persona, because of the way that he moves. But he doesn’t look like he breaks sweat and when United are chasing a game you want someone to get across the front post – you might not score, but your teammate might score.
“It’s all these sort of things that you’re not getting off him at the moment. With Mason coming on and doing that, getting in positions to score goals, he [Martial] is going to be under pressure, because he’s not giving you anything defensively and he’s not giving you anything offensively either.”
On Greenwood, “He looks a threat, every time he comes on. I think Ole is handling him in the right way at the moment, bringing him on, impact player,” Giggs added.
“It’s just how long you can keep him like that, because also when he starts games he’s scoring goals.
“We talk about Martial, he’s not doing enough, he’s not much of a goal threat, no chances in the box, so it won’t be long before Mason Greenwood starts.”
