Manchester United fans criticise Martial for not speaking English

Anthony Martial has become quite the fan favourite at Manchester United this season.

The Frenchman had to fight his way into Jose Mourinho’s team after being left out of the squad a handful of times.

In the current campaign, the attacker has been thriving, scoring 11 goals and creating six assists in 34 appearances – 21 starts – in all competitions.

This week, the Frenchman was named United’s Player of the Month for January due to his impressive form, which included three goals and two assists.

As expected, the fans were delighted that the 22-year-old was handed the gong, but some were left disappointed with his thank-you message to the supporters.

The former Monaco star said all the right things, but a handful of United’s following were irked by the fact that he did not speak French.

Martial has been living in England for the past two-and-a-half years, but his video message indicates that he is not 100% comfortable speaking the local language.

Some supporters have been left less than impressed.
