Mourinho warns Martial to show more than ‘glimpses’

Jose Mourinho has told Anthony Martial not to be “happy just with glimpses of talent”.

Martial enjoyed a stellar debut season at Manchester United under Louis van Gaal after joining in summer 2015.

The Frenchman struggled to establish himself under Mourinho when the Portuguese was appointed last May however, and soon lost his first-team place.

He has started this season in fine form, scoring against both West Ham and Swansea, despite only being a substitute thus far.

Mourinho is happy with his start to the campaign, but warns that he “wants more from him”.

“I think when you have some talent, you cannot waste it,” the manager said.

“I think when you’re blessed with some talent, you have to fulfil that talent, you have to explore that talent, you cannot be happy just with glimpses of talent.

“I want more from him because he has all the qualities for that. But I think he understands me better too and the personal relationship is good.

“I hope he’s going to better this season than last season.”
