Paul Scholes: Anthony Martial's movements are very bad

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has been very critical of the club's striker Anthony Martial, attacking the forward's positioning off the ball.

Speaking to BT Sport, the former midfielder said: "The movement from the center-forwards was virtually non-existent. Anthony Martial, the amount of times I looked up when a midfielder had the ball, he was just stood in between the two center-backs doing nothing.

"I'm a big fan of Martial but the amount of times I looked up and he was walking, he has have to realize as a center-forward - every now and again you have to move if you're going to score a goal. You can't just be walking in front of two center-backs doing nothing."

The French international scored United's goal in the 2-1 loss against Istanbul Basaksehir, but that was not enough to help the Red Devils mount a comeback.

Martial's only two goals this season have come during his last two appearances.
