‘What is he here for? He must score goals “: Louis Saha criticizes Anthony Martial’s attitude … and insists that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the determination to succeed at Manchester United
- Louis Saha is an admirer of Anthony Martial and says that his skills are “incredible.”
- Martial scored three goals in the last three games of Manchester United
- Former United-striker Saha was also excited to see how Odion Ighalo is doing
- He gives Harry Maguire an 8/10 for this season and supports Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Louis Saha, former Louis United striker, insists that criticism of Anthony Martial’s body language is not taken into account because he only wants to score goals.
The much-offended Martial stepped on the plate in the absence of Marcus Rashford and scored a goal in each of the last three games of the club and brought his season to 15 in all competitions.
Colleague Frenchman Saha, who played with Sir Alex Ferguson on Old Trafford for four and a half years, admits that he is a big fan of the 24-year-old and reminded critics of what Martial’s primary responsibility on the field is.

“His skills are just unbelievable – the anger and aggressiveness he’s showing now is unplayable,” Saha said Sportsmail.
‘Everyone always tells me’ he has to run more ‘, but why is he here? He must score goals. Tell him not to run anymore if this will affect his target speeds.
“The attitude doesn’t matter. Playing for United can be very difficult if you are not fed by your teammates, but everyone knows that he is a huge threat and only needs one or two chances to score. ”

Saha also acknowledged that he was excited to see how Odion Ighalo was doing and glowed over Harry Maguire’s first season at the club.
“He has a different kind of style [to other forward options] and has a lot of strength and power – the competition will be really useful, “said Saha, speaking from Marriott Hotels Seat of Dreams in Old Trafford.
‘Of course, if you go to another country, there is a question of how you will be when you return, but he is clearly a motivated boy and I am excited to see more.

“Maguire has certainly been one of the successful acquisitions. With everything he offers and his leadership, I would say that Maguire has been at least an 8/10 this season. ”
Saha, now 41, also supported former teammate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to succeed as a United-boss because of his determination and motivation.
Although Saha revealed that in the mid-2000s he saw Roy Keane and Gary Neville as more vocal leaders in the dressing room, he praised the engaging functions of the Norwegian at the moment.
“Of course, as a young manager in such a big position you are going to make mistakes,” Saha added.
