Anthony Martial speaks about Jose Mourinho to Manchester United rumours
Manchester United striker Anthony Martial has spoken about the prospect of Jose Mourinho managing at Old Trafford next season.
The 20-year-old has impressed in his debut season at the club after initial concerns that the club had overspent for the largely unknown Frenchman.
With United still out of the Champions League places in the Premier League and after a poor European campaign, current manager Louis van Gaal has found himself under huge pressure, especially given the amount of money spent in his reign and the conservative brand of football he plays.
Former Chelsea manager Mourinho, sacked just six months after winning the Blues their first title in five years, has been consistently linked to the job in the last few months.
Martial, who has 13 goals this season, has revealed he is keen to repay Dutchman Van Gaal.
"As long as the current coach is there, I don't think about it," he told France Football when asked about the speculation.
"If Mourinho must arrive, he will arrive. For the moment the coach is still there.
"Every coach has their good and bad sides. Van Gaal has given me a lot of confidence and I try hard to pay it back to him every day."
