FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Andy Cole is not sure what Anthony Martial’s favoured position is, and has called on the Manchester United forward to “show more desire and passion” on the pitch. United snapped Martial up as a teenage prospect while he was on the books of Monaco in 2015, forking out £54 million ($69m) to lure him to Old Trafford. The Frenchman has since recorded 70 goals and 37 assists in 217 appearances in all competitions, but only showed glimpses of his frightening potential under Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho. Martial has stepped his game up another level since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival as head coach, having been trusted to lead the line following the departure of Romelu Lukaku. The former Monaco star has broken the 20-goal barrier for the first time in his career this season and has been the most prolific frontman in the Premier League since last month’s return from lockdown. The 24-year-old has found the net six times in his last seven top-flight outings while serving as the focal point in a United side now on the verge of a top-four finish. Cole isn’t getting too carried away with Martial’s recent record, though, as he believes the France international has taken far too long to start justifying his hefty price tag.Advertisementlast_img read more
