Manchester United played another disappointing match and in the end, they were defeated by West Ham (1:0). The fans are disappointed with the performance of most of the players, and it seems that Anthony Martial's performance is particularly displeasing.
Premier League legend Alan Shearer has just spoken about Martial and the chances he has been getting over the years. ‘Anthony Martial has had enough time at Manchester United,’ Shearer said, as quoted by METRO.
‘You don’t need to make any big decision on him because I think the decision has already been made or it should already have been made.'
Martial arrived at the club in 2015 and it looked like he would be a big reinforcement.
However, since then, the Frenchman has not shown much. ‘He’s been there long enough, he’s had enough chances. He’s not good enough to take Man United to where they want to be. If he was good enough he would be starting on a regular basis and he would be scoring goals.
He’s had his time and it hasn’t worked for him, that’s my opinion.’
Ian Wright on Anthony Martial
Ian Wright also pointed out his dissatisfaction with Martial's performances. ‘With all due respect to Martial, if you’ve got Wout Weghorst starting in front of you, you’ve got a problem.’ Erik ten Hag spoke about his impressions after the match.
In the first half, United had several chances that they did not take. After that, the punishment came. ‘First half I think it was a decent performance and second half it was below our standards,’ Ten Hag said. ‘We should have been up in the first half, we played good football but one mistake and you are following the effects. We have everything in our hands but we have to bounce back and reset, we have to use this week.’
