EPL: How Solskjaer blasted Martial in front of Man Utd squad

Solskjaer blasted Martial

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, ripped into Anthony Martial following their 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Sunday, SportsMail reports.



Solskjaer vented his anger at Martial in front of the other players in the dressing-room, after leaving the Frenchman on the bench at Old Trafford.

Martial has been complaining of a bad back, but it’s understood that Solskjaer was unhappy with the player’s blatant lack of effort.


The Norwegian decided to send on Alexis Sanchez rather than Martial as a replacement for Marcus Rashford, when the England striker succumbed to an existing shoulder injury in the 65th minute.

There have been concerns over Martial’s attitude since he signed a new five-year contract at the end of January, following a string of lacklustre performances.

Having been first-choice since Solskjaer took over in December in a front three alongside Rashford and Jesse Lingard, the former Monaco man is now out of favour.
