Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is promising the club’s fans that a reborn Anthony Martial will be seen next season.

The France International signed a new five-year contract at the end of January only to lose form as the season progressed into its latter stages.

The forward form has been topsy-curvy much to the frustrations of Solskjaer and former United manager, Jose Mourinho.

The former Monaco player had a beautiful start to his United career and was the club’s top scorer in his first season, but inconsistency has been his major problem. Currently, Solskjaer has been impressed with the player’s attitude and commitment in pre-season.

“Anthony can be a world class forward,” Solskjaer said ahead of United’s International Champions Cup friendly against Inter Milan at Singapore’s National Stadium on Saturday.

“I think if you followed Anthony in the last few seasons, the way he’s come back to pre-season now, and you can ask Nemanja [Matic] as well from seeing him in training, his attitude is absolutely spot on.

“There’s been a couple of instances where you can see a new Anthony in the way that he works for the team. He has always got the quality, talent, he’s going to score goals and his work rate is improving.

“I expect him and Marcus to be even better than last season. Anthony had a top season when he came, his first season top scorer, then he’s had a couple of seasons where he’s not hit that amount of goals and quality so I’m sure we will see a better Anthony this year.”
