Anthony Martial’s latest comments will delight Man United fans
Anthony Martial has been delighted by the reception he has been given by the fans since his arrival at Manchester United
Anthony Martial has heaped praise on Manchester United’s fans for the relentless support they have shown him since he arrived at the club.
The French striker earned plenty of new admirers after bursting onto the scene last season under Louis van Gaal but has found his first team opportunities to be somewhat more restricted this season.
Martial will be hoping to play a role in helping Manchester United finish in the top four and win the Europa League this season.
And the forward has opened up about how he has been thrilled to be made to feel so welcome since his transfer to Old Trafford from Monaco in 2015.
Speaking to Inside United, Martial said: “For me, what’s really special here is the supporters. They’ve been really outstanding with me.
“I think that’s what goes a long way to making me feel at home and at ease, and makes me really keen to stay here at the club.
“In France, even if you’re one of the best players around, they might begin to boo and jeer you if you go a couple of games without scoring.
“But here it’s just the opposite, they’ll try to cheer you on so you might be able to score, and so then you grow in confidence.
“I think it’s just a different mentality. That’s why I like the fans here so much.”
