Anthony Martial ‘put on transfer list by Man Utd because Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t like his attitude’




MANCHESTER UNITED have put Anthony Martial on the transfer list because Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t like his attitude, according to reports.

The Frenchman’s approach has been described as ‘terrible’ amid reports linking him with a summer exit from Old Trafford.

Anthony Martial has reportedly been transfer listed by Man Utd[/caption]


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be unhappy with the Frenchman’s attitude[/caption]

Martial scored just seven times in 36 games last season.

The 25-year-old was axed from the team in place of Edinson Cavani, 34, who was rewarded with a one-year contract extension in May.

And the Uruguayan’s new deal has reportedly thrown Martial’s future into doubt.

Speaking on the Transfer Window podcast, Duncan Castles said: “Anthony Martial is to be sacrificed should they get this new forward in.

“Solskjaer is tired of his attitude and hasn’t been impressed with his goal production and general knitting into the team this season.”

Castles also reckons Martial has been offered to Real Madrid on a season long loan with an option to buy.

Norwegian Solskjaer is after a long-term solution up front which has seen United linked with Tottenham star Harry Kane.

And the Red Devils were said to be considering a cash-plus-player deal including Martial for the England ace.

Martial was named in SunSport’s best XI players to miss out on France’s squad for Euro 2020.

Even though Didier Deschamps was able to summon 26 stars for this summer’s tournament, a whole host of aces missed out on a place in his squad.

Martial picked up a knee ligament injury on international duty in March.

Karim Benzema was called up in his place with Deschamps saying Martial’s ‘condition did not allow’ for him to be selected.

Austria 3 North Macedonia 1: Ex-West Ham star Arnautovic scores in Euro 2020 win after team’s defensive howler




AUSTRIAN blushes were spared as Michael Gregoritsch and Marko Arnautovic netted second half goals to see off plucky North Macedonia.

Stefan Lainer expertly volleyed Austria into an 18th-minute lead, and then paid tribute to stricken Denmark star Christian Eriksen.

The former Spurs star suffered a cardiac arrest during his country’s 1-0 defeat to Finland.

But veteran striker Goran Pandev capitalised on some horrific defending from Austria to bring the minnows level.

Austria tried to step things up in the second period, and a wonderful ball from Marcel Sabitzer was finished off by Gregoritsch.

He too held up a shirt in tribute to Eriksen.

The points were secured when substitute and former West Ham man Marko Arnautovic slotted home number three.

But it was not plain sailing for the Austrians. 

After reaching the Euros by beating Georgia in the playoffs following Nations League success, some would assume the North Macedonians were just happy to be here.  

Beating them twice in qualifying, including a 4-1 thrashing, the pressure was on Austria to deliver.

The 28-year-old held his own tribute for Eriksen[/caption]

But Macedonian boss Igor Angelovski has built a well-organised outfit who have gone from 132nd to 62nd in the world rankings since he took charge in 2015.

His best bit of business though was convincing Pandev to come out of international retirement.

With the scalps of four-time World Cup winners Germany already under their belts from a 2-1 victory in March, they were always likely to cause an upset.

And boy did they roll up their sleeves and give it a go.


Goran Pandev looks to the heaven after bringing North Macedonia level[/caption]

Being their first ever appearance at a major tournament since their independence from the former Yugoslavia in 1991, it was no surprise all 11 Macedonians on the pitch were full of energy.

They found themselves in the right areas but could not find the quality to whip up any real danger.

And Austria made them pay as Lainer sneaked in behind to volley home a perfectly flighted ball by RB Leipzig maverick Sabitzer.

He celebrated by holding up a shirt saying “Eriksen stay strong” as the footballing world continues to show their support for the Denmark midfielder.

Yet, his sublime finish would come undone when a defensive mix up gave veteran Pandev his moment to become the second oldest goalscorer at the Euros in the 28th minute.


Arnautovic had a somewhat bizarre celebration after scoring[/caption]

Leeds star Ezgjan Alioski’s cross ricocheted off two defenders and found its way into the box which left Real Madrid newbie David Alaba shielding the ball for keeper Daniel Bachmann to collect.

But the Watford stopper’s spill allowed the 37-year-old Pandev to roll in his 38th national goal on his 120th cap into an empty net.

It was all he needed after building a career of being at the right place at the right time as he once won the treble under Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan.

Sub Gregoritsch spoiled any hopes of Macedonia recreating the heroics seen by Iceland in 2016 by stabbing home Alba’s cross 12 minutes from time before Arnautovic added the extras late on.
