Anthony Martial's wife attacks Mourinho

Anthony Martial's wife, Martial Da Cruz has criticized Jose Mourinho for failing to player her husband during his time as Manchester United's manager between 2016 and 2018.

According to her, she felt trapped by the injustice of Mourinho leaving out Martial from his squad which really affected the France international.

“During our first two years together in Manchester, I experienced a very difficult period because José Mourinho did not play him [Martial] (between 2016 and 2018),’ Martial Da Cruz told L’Equipe.

“In these cases, Anthony shuts himself out. You know he’s suffering, but he doesn’t say it. I felt trapped in my sense of injustice because, as a wife, you can’t say anything (to the coach).

“We’re just watching our man go down. I was experiencing it so badly that I didn’t go to certain events so as not to meet the coach.”

Martial is currently enjoying an impressive time under new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He's had eight goals in 15 appearances for the Red Devils.
