Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has slammed striker Anthony Martial after his former team was held to a 1-1 draw by Everton on Sunday.
Speaking on the Premier League’s matchday coverage after the game, Giggs described Martial as ‘casual’ and ‘lethargic’ and said he didn’t try enough in the game.
“He is talented, and he’s not a bad kid, but the problem he has is that he looks lethargic all the time. He looks casual as if he’s not bothered. When it comes off, and he’s doing brilliant things, you say it just comes naturally. But when it’s not, you think: he’s not running, he’s not trying, he’s not working hard enough, he’s not holding the ball up,” Giggs said.
The Wales boss further stated that Martial position was under threat with the emergence of youngster Mason Greenwood who grabbed the equalizer in the game.
“With Mason coming on and doing that, getting in positions to score goals, he (Martial) is going to be under pressure, because he’s not giving you anything defensively and he’s not giving you anything offensively either,” he added.
Despite a proper performance in the Manchester derby, Martial has disappointed in United’s last two games in all competitions, where he has failed to muster a single shot on target.
