Anthony Martial has given the Manchester United fans something to smile about after having a strong influence in the club’s 3-0 win over Young Boys on Wednesday night. Martial found the back of the net in the 66th minute to cap off an excellent start to the club’s Champions League campaign.
Martial’s future at the club has been under the spotlight since the summer transfer window after it appeared his relationship with manager José Mourinho had hit rock bottom. Martial’s only start for United this season, prior to Wednesday night’s match, was against Brighton & Hove Albion in a fixture that turned into a rather forgettable one for the 22-year-old with the Seagulls claiming a stunning 3-2 win.
However, Martial’s goal on Wednesday was rather similar to the one he spectacularly scored on his debut for United against Liverpool back in 2015 and the fans are heaping praise on him, hoping this will see him get back to his best.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions by United supporters:
Time to build up on that goal, great finish. Confidence sky high. 👏👏 pic.twitter.com/8TxcqrOAj5
