Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has slammed critics who question the attitude and application of key players Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba.

Speaking to Manchester Evening News, the former striker said:

“Martial has been criticised for his attitude but sometimes people misinterpret things and that’s the problem with our industry. People don’t know who you are and what you want and they assume.

“I have been victim of that sometimes, they pick on one thing and think you have a nonchalant attitude and then they you start getting criticism as to why you’re not producing on a regular basis. The same criticism can be said of Pogba. It’s something you have to accept in the industry.

“Martial is a talented player and has everything needed to be world class. He can score goals and build play. He now has to be focused on things that will definitely work. He needs to be more of a killer and I think he has done that in the last few games.”

Martial has now scored in three consecutive games for the club, but Paul Pogba looks likely to leave the club in the summer.
