Juventus CR7 comes face to face with his old club Manchester United

Martial, who has scored five goals in his last four premier league appearances comes in for the games against Uruguay and their Nations League match in the Netherlands on November 16. martial, 22, was not included in the France squad that won the 2018 world cup in Russian Federation. his last cap was against Russian Federation in march.

And speaking on Martial's U-turn at the club, Mourinho has revealed he set a hard path for his player in order for him to realise his "phenomenal talent".

"I never gave up my feelings that this was the right way for him, even if he had to go through hard moments".

Martial, 22, was not in the France squad that won the World Cup in Russian Federation. He knows it and I've told him.

"It was just a question of him understanding what a top player is because there is a big difference between a top talent and a top player".

However, the 22-year-old France hopeful bounced back in form strongly into this season, scoring five league goals for his club so far.

And France boss Didier Deschamps agrees with Mourinho that Martial's rough patches have made him a better player.


France squad in full: Alphonse Areola (Paris St-Germain), Hugo Lloris (Tottenham Hotspur), Steve Mandanda (Marseille), Lucas Digne (Everton), Presnel Kimpembe (Paris St-Germain), Benjamin Mendy (Manchester City), Benjamin Pavard (Stuttgart), Adil Rami (Marseille), Mamadou Sakho (Crystal Palace), Djibril Sidibe (Monaco), Raphael Varane (Real Madrid), N'Golo Kante (Chelsea), Blaise Matuidi (Juventus), Tanguy Ndombele (Lyon), Steven Nzonzi (Roma), Paul Pogba (Manchester United), Ousmane Dembele (Barcelona), Nabil Fekir (Lyon), Olivier Giroud (Chelsea), Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid), Anthony Martial (Manchester United), Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain), Florian Thauvin (Marseille).

'Anthony has been with the national team for a while now. I'm talking about commitment and efficiency in front of goal.

Anthony Martial to sign new Manchester United contract?

He is still a young player but who, I hope, is seeing the importance he has taken in Manchester in recent weeks.

The United superstar has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, amid reports of a hard relationship with manager Jose Mourinho, but the Portuguese coach has made him central to his plans in recent weeks .

Martial has six goals in 13 games in all competitions this season and could add to his 18 France appearances when Deschamps' men meet Netherlands and Uruguay later this month.
