Martial ‘happy’ with more prominent role under Solskjaer

The French international reveals why the manager has been good for him and the other young players at Old Trafford. 

When Anthony Martial burst onto the Premier League scene in 2015 – scoring a wondrous goal against Liverpool on his debut – it seemed as if Manchester United had bought themselves the next big thing.

After impressing greatly in that initial season under Louis Van Gaal, the winger saw his minutes per game diminish in the first two campaigns under José Mourinho, especially after the club bought Alexis Sanchez last January.

Martial persevered however, and is now flourishing this season, scoring nine goals in all competitions as a key component of the first-team.

“I’m happy, I’m playing more now this season than I was previously,” Martial told Premier League Productions.

“So hopefully that can continue. I want to continue scoring goals and obviously that will have the effect of helping the team, so as long as I’m playing I am very happy.”

Martial also praised caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has guided United to six consecutive wins in the Premier League:

“He gives us lots of advice for sure, it’s very good for young players like us,” Martial added.

“It give us opportunity to learn from his good advice.”
