Berbatov urges Martial to step up his game with Man-Utd

Fri 04 December 2020 | 14:33

The former Red Devils player hopes there would be a player, who could be reliable enough, to lead the team’s front line.

Ex-

Manchester United

player,

Dimitar Berbatov

, believes

Anthony Martial

has to put more effort into stepping up his game while looking up to players like

Edinson Cavani

. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has been trying different formulations on the squad, has both

Marcus Rashford

and Martial in his front line but their presence is still questioned as a permanent option for the Red Devils.

Berbatov

, who talked about Marital looking up to Cavani for inspiration, told

“I was thinking about him [Martial] and there were fans messaging me on social media about him asking what is going on with him and why he isn't producing and scoring goals. He needs to up his game, not only him but the whole team too. In the really important games he need to shine even more.”

“I've been surprised with how well Edinson Cavani has performed, the guy is 33 years old and he's running around the pitch like he's a 25-year-old, fighting for the ball, making spaces, the passion he had is still there and that is something that Martial needs to look at and improve on. He needs to bully defenders and get dirty from time to time.”

“He has the other attributes like technique, speed and stamina and other things like that, but in some games, like the one against PSG, you need to be a bit nasty and when you have an opportunity to score, you need to score.”

“I hope it's just a blip for him because I like him as a player and as a human, I hope he can continue and get better with his development. I can tell that Solskjaer likes him a lot as well with the amount of game time he is getting. Hopefully, after the games, win or lose he looks for advice from Ole, and with Cavani there he can see how he is moving around and they've both been in the French league so they will know each other.”

“The examples are around him, he only needs to look around him and ask, it's as simple as that. On the training pitch he just needs to stay and work on things that may be missing from his game.”
