Saha urge Manchester United player to be selfish

Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has urged Manchester United striker Anthony Martial to be more selfish and goal-obsessed.

Martial has been poor this season, scoring just four goals in 21 Premier League appearances.

“I think he’s a top player, that’s for sure,” Saha told talkSPORT.

“I think when you’re a No 9 and you’re not scoring, it’s difficult as people are only asking you to score goals. That’s it.

“When you’re not doing it you’re going to be criticised. You need to be strong and really believe. You also need to be selfish and adopt a style of play that you really fancy.

“Having that obsession with scoring goals makes it easier because people say he’s been unlucky but you can see when he’s in his comfort zone people get on his back.”
