“You arrogant, entitled little nitwit” – Anthony Martial criticized for explosive rant over former Manchester United managers

“You arrogant, entitled little nitwit” – Anthony Martial criticized for explosive rant over former Manchester United managers

In three preseason games during the summer, Anthony Martial scored three goals, and he appears to be regaining his previous form. After some awful years at Old Trafford, as Martial discussed in a recent interview with France Football, this is a welcome change.

He talked about how Mourinho “disrespected” him and accused Solskjaer of “treason” for shielding him from the press while still playing him while injured. However, TalkSPORT pundit Simon Jordan has criticised the France international and feels that some of the blame should fall on Martial.

When informed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s arrival had caused Mourinho to change Martial’s jersey number from nine to eleven, he questioned: “How is that treachery? So basically – you arrogant, entitled little nitwit – your manager offered you an opportunity to see his way of thinking, you perceived that as being treachery. And you then move it along and you take a swipe at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.”

“This sort of outlook and disposition, does it not stagger you a little bit and steer into the narrative that people have such a low opinion of footballers sometimes, the lack of self-awareness?”

Talksport pundit emphasized Anthony Martial should take some responsibility for his downfall at Manchester United

Under Louis van Gaal, Martial was the primary goal scorer for United, but that changed after Mourinho took over. In Martial’s opinion, being moved out wide to make room for Ibrahimovic and then Romelu Lukaku cost him a spot in France’s 2018 World Cup team.

Jordan cited Martial’s last season’s loan to Sevilla as evidence that he needs to take some responsibility. The former Monaco player suffered with injuries while playing in Spain and only scored one goal. He continued: “He stunk the place out at Sevilla last year, so this is not him, the dynamic is not him, it’s everybody else. It’s everybody’s fault, but him. So it wasn’t his fault, it was Mourinho’s fault.”

“It wasn’t his fault, it was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s fault. I’m assuming that it was too hot in Sevilla, so it wasn’t his fault either. At what point does someone say to this fella, ‘shut up’?”
