Gary Neville explains exactly why Jose Mourinho wasn't sure about Anthony Martial

30 October 2018

The former Liverpool midfielder left his Sky Sport's colleagues clinging to their chairs when he did the unthinkable by throwing some praise in the direction of Paul Pogba this weekend, but he also lavished praise on Manchester United winger and man of the moment, Anthony Martial, describing him as "the full package".

Martial would add a second for United early in the second half before Gylfi Sigurdsson pulled one back for the Toffees on a penalty in the late going.

United have since struggled defensively - leaking 17 goals in 10 games and keeping just one Premier League clean sheet so far - leading a report from The Guardian to declare that Mourinho will be backed in January to strengthen the squad "if the right deal is possible". "He needs more confidence".

At least 18, mostly children, killed in Jordan flash flood
In a separate incident a four-year-old was killed in southern Israel when he was swept away by flooding, local media reported . "We are now assisting Jordan in rescuing a bus full of children swept away in a flood on the Jordanian side of the Dead Sea".

Juventus director Pavel Nedved said Paul Pogba returning to Juventus would be "wonderful" amid reports the Manchester United star could leave Old Trafford. Sometimes I don't think he understands how good he is. "I don't like Mickey Mouses, fragile, afraid to go, saying, 'I don't take penalties.' I like the player that says, 'I want to take it.' Maybe he has to change his approach but I don't want him to change his mental approach".

Mourinho was eager to land a new centre-back all summer but the United hierarchy failed in their efforts to secure some targets and refused to deliver others.

"To be serious, he does need more confidence and this comes with results". In his record, there is nothing that has set the world alight, he's scored some goals but his ratio you certainly would not say are high enough to live with the modern day great wide players in Europe and the Premier League'.

United manager Jose Mourinho was hugely pleased with Martial's performance saying he had improved everything about his game in recent months. Do I like him?

"But he is a great person and a great guy and I am happy for him that he is scoring".
