Manchester United legend Andy Cole has blasted Manchester United striker Anthony Martial for his lack of goals for the club despite playing for a long period of time.
The Frenchman has been at Old Trafford since 2015 when he joined as a teenager from AS Monaco in a €50 million deal. The French striker became the most expensive teenager in British football history at the time.
He was dubbed as a future Red Devils superstar after he announced his arrival in English football with a famous goal on his debut in a 3-1 win against Liverpool.
However, the 27-year-old has failed to meet expectations, as injury issues, inconsistent form and a lack of confidence have limited his impact.
Former Red Devils striker has openly criticised Martial who has yet to hit 100 goals for the club despite spending eight years at the club. The United icon doesn’t think the Frenchman has been good enough.
He told Betfred: “Martial has been at Manchester United for 8 years now, and he hasn’t even scored 100 goals. It’s incredible. He is a centre-forward at Manchester United, and he has played in some fantastic teams. His best performance in the league was 17 goals.”
Cole added: “He’s had more than enough time and opportunity to show United just how good he is and he unfortunately hasn’t been able to do so.”
Martial has bagged 88 goals in 301 games across competitions in eight years.
The France international could lose his staring berth to Rasmus Hojlund who arrived from Atalanta earlier this summer for €75 million.
