Anthony Martial reacts to Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Man United

Anthony Martial has his say on Manchester United's appointment of Jose Mourinho as the club's new manager

Anthony Martial has revealed his excitement at the prospect of lining up for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United next season.

The Portuguese coach was appointed as the club’s new manager on a three-year contract last week after days of speculation linking him with the Old Trafford job.

Mourinho is expected to bring in a number of new players in the summer transfer window as he bids to revamp his squad ahead of his first full season in charge.

And France striker Martial admits that he is a keen admirer of the former Chelsea boss and is looking forward to working for him next season.

Martial is quoted as saying by TEAMtalk: “We know that Mourinho is a great coach, one of the best in the world.”

Mourinho had been out of work since his sacking by Chelsea back in December following the Blues’ disastrous start to the season under the Portuguese coach.
