Man Utd fans vent frustration after Anthony Martial puts on dazzling performance in Sevilla’s LaLiga win over Elche


ANTHONY MARTIAL registered a glorious assist on his second appearance for Sevilla which left Manchester United fans wondering where that talent had been in the first half of the season.

United loaned Martial out to Sevilla in January and the 26-year-old has been an instant hit in LaLiga.

After being told by Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui that he has to ‘give more’ after his debut, Martial marked his second game with an assist.

In Sevilla’s clash against Elche on Sunday Martial gathered a long ball over the top on the left hand side from ex-Barcelona man Ivan Rakitic.

And on his weaker left foot he lifted a delicious cross into the Elche boss.

It landed straight in the path of striker Rafa Mir, who duly plonked his header into the back of the net to help Sevilla to a precious 2-0 win.

The three points keeps them second in LaLiga just three points off leaders Real Madrid, although Los Blancos do have a game in hand.

Martial was also involved in the build-up to Alejandro Gomez’s opener and was given a standing ovation by Sevilla fans when substituted in the 82nd minute.


And after the game he took in more applause from the crowd as they chanted his name back at him.

But after a dismal first half to the campaign with Manchester United fans were left frustrated by his excellent performance in Spain.

One took to social media writing: “Martial FC is back,” after he registered the impressive assist.

While another slammed Marcus Rashford by saying should have been loaned out instead of Martial.

They wrote: “Imagine Rashford trying to cross the ball with his left foot lol, we loaned out the wrong player…”

And a third added: “Martial balling at Sevilla while Rashford and Ronaldo are missing open goals for fun.”

Martial will return to Old Trafford at the end of the season, although his permanent future at United remains uncertain.
