Martial has not been 100 percent this season – Erik Ten Hag
Days after it was reported that Anthony Martial has been added to the list of Manchester United players to be sold, the club’s coach Erik Ten Hag has said that he has never been 100 percent this season.
Ten Hag described Martial’s fitness woes as a “pity” but admitted that he’s made a big impact every time he is available.
“Every time in different areas. At the minute, it is his hip. He is not always available, but also I see the other side when he is available.
“He was never 100 percent this season but he had a big impact every time he is available, even when he is at 80, 85, 90 percent.
“So we do everything and Anthony Martial is doing everything. I think Anthony Martial is the player who has spent the most hours at Carrington this season, to return to recover, to get back, it is really so a pity for him that he is disappointed. He is not always available and we want him to be always available because that will improve our game and because routines can’t become routines when you are not always available.”
Martial picked up a hip injury last week and stares at another period on the sidelines. He has already been out of action with multiple injuries that he has sustained in this campaign and has not played a full 90 minutes for United in the Premier League since January 2021.
