Martial’s misery continues with humiliating statistic

Manchester United striker Anthony Martial has been having a torrid few months, and it has been made even worse by his brother.

The Frenchman has struggled for first-team action since November, and has made just nine Premier League starts this season and four appearances off the bench.

Manager Jose Mourinho has challenged the 21-year-old to fight for his place in the team, but at the moment he is spending more time on the bench than on the pitch.

As a result, Martial’s goal statistics have suffered, scoring just two goals in 13 league appearances.

To make matters worse, the forward’s brother Johan Martial, who plays as a defender for Ligue 2 club Troyes, has a better goals-per-minute ratio than the £36m man at Old Trafford.

Freelance football writer Robin Bairner revealed the surprise figures on Twitter.

Martial’s form is a stark contrast to his performances in his debut campaign at United when he scored 11 goals.
