Manchester United have been in a rich vein of form of late, and it’s largely due to the size of the playing squad Jose Mourinho has at his disposal. The manager can chop and change to suit a particular fixture, and that’s key, especially as we’re in four competitions still.
One man who is now an integral part of the starting XI and squad is Anthony Martial – who himself didn’t have the greatest of seasons until things started clicking a couple of weeks ago.
Now the supremely talented Frenchman has come out and expressed his love for Manchester United and their fans, before adding he wants to stay here for as long as possible.
“I love this club. I love the fans. They give me a lot of joy & I enjoy having their backing. I want to stay as long as possible.” Anthony Martial is quoted as saying by United’s official Twitter feed.
This is just brilliant to read. Jose Mourinho deserves heaps of credit for just how well he man-managed the 21-year-old forward. He put Martial back into action at the right moment, and now we’re reaping the rewards.
To hear the Frenchman come out and sound so convincing in his words about wanting to be here for a while is just great, and I for one would love for him to spend the rest of his career here at the Theatre of Dreams.
