Many things can be said about Jose Mourinho’s time at Manchester United, and while most of it will be debatable and argued upon, there is one thing that nobody can deny from being absolutely true.
The manager was not afraid to publicly criticize many of his big-name players, and while the world feared the worst for him and the dressing room, things might have just gone to plan for the Portuguese.
Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba are two such names that turned their form around after being thrown under the bus by Mourinho, but nobody did it better than Anthony Martial.
The French forward was consistently out of his manager’s favour, which also ended up costing him a World Cup medal in the summer.

However, instead of running for the exit door, the no. 11 decided to stay and work harder to win his place back into the squad and show his boss what he is capable of doing.
With goals in 4 consecutive Premier League games and brilliant performances out on the left wing in every game, Tony has certainly turned things around for his immediate career.
The Red Devils’ management seem to have recognized the commitment put forward by the starlet, and as per The Sun, the 22-year-old will now be rewarded with fresh terms, consisting of a five-year deal being valued at around £190,000-a-week in terms of wages (Total £45 million including bonuses).
The club also has an option to extend his current contract by 12 months, a move that will prevent him from walking out of the doors in the summer for free.
While Juventus also see the player as a potential target, Martial will be more inclined towards penning down a new deal at the Theatre of Dreams and continue doing what he does best: impressing one and all.
