Paul Scholes spoke highly of Anthony Martial two months ago, but the former midfielder has changed his mind.
Paul Scholes does not have his tongue in his pocket. The former Mancunian, now a luxury consultant, never takes gloves with his former team.
Fan vote for Goal 50: Who were the best players in 2019-20?
Anthony Martial may have experienced it, as Scholes seems to have changed his mind about him, accusing the French striker of “deceiving” fans about his scoring prowess.
Martial enjoyed his best season in 2019-2020, leaving behind injury issues to score 23 goals in 48 appearances across all competitions.
The France international was named United’s player of the year, leading his team’s offensives to put him third in the Premier League.
In August, Scholes said Martial had finally convinced him he was capable of playing as a center forward.
However, with the Frenchman failing to score or assist in 2020-21, former United star Scholes feels “almost cheated” by the forward’s past performances.
“These forwards are exceptionally talented guys. We all know that,” he told Stadium Astro.
“The problem with United forwards is that none of them are a true center-forward. Martial almost made us believe he was at the end of last season because he had scored so many goals and was pretty good. He started badly again this season, which makes you think he’s not. It’s misleading. That’s why I keep saying we need a first class number nine. “
