Anthony Martial

Anthony Martial believes that Erik ten Hag’s style of play at Manchester United is perfect for him as he continues his road to recovery.

Martial spent the second half of last season on loan at Sevilla and it appeared as though his days at United were numbered after two difficult seasons.

However, under Ten Hag the Frenchman has rediscovered his form, scoring three goals and grabbing two assists in just five appearances. Unfortunately for Martial he has struggled for fitness this season, missing the vast majority of the campaign due to three separate injuries.

He is now back in training and made his return in a 25-minute cameo vs Aston Villa on Sunday. Speaking to club media, Martial, who is set to feature against Villa in the Carabao Cup on Thursday night, praised his new head coach and the decisions he has made so far.

“He’s a very good manager and a very meticulous person, who pays attention to all the details,” Martial explained. “He wants us to produce good football with a desire to press for the loss of the ball. It’s perfect for me, for my style of play.”

Praising United’s fans, Martial added: “It’s an incredible feeling walking out onto the pitch (at Old Trafford) and having 75,000 fans at every game is an incredible feeling for us. We want to give our all to repay them.”
