Manchester United winger Anthony Martial is happy with Jose Mourinho’s tough love even though he has started only three Premier League games this season.
The Frenchman has scored six goals in all competitions for United this season but has consistently played second fiddle to Marcus Rashford.
He returned to the France squad this week after a year-long absence and impressed against Germany in a 2-2 draw.

“He’s hard with all of us and he is hard with me, there is no question,” said Martial this week.
“But I know that it’s for my benefit. But I also know that he really likes me as a person, so there’s no issue about the discipline being for the wrong reasons.
“But the objective, of course, is to have all of us in good condition, and being fit to play every match and that is what I’m hoping to do.
“At the beginning we didn’t know each other too well, but over time we have got to know each other better.
“He knows my strengths and my weaknesses, such as they are, but the outcome is that we are learning to give everything in the right way.”
