Manchester United's Anthony Martial: Louis van Gaal makes me laugh
Manchester United forward Anthony Martial said that he is shouted at by the club's manager Louis van Gaal -- but it makes him laugh.
Martial, 20, knows that being told off is for his own benefit, which is why he does not take it to heart. The Frenchman revealed that he was also warned by his national team manager, Didier Deschamps, about not fulfilling his potential back in the autumn.
Martial has impressed this season, including seven goals in 24 Premier League appearances, since joining from Monaco on September 1. He told RTL: "He [Van Gaal] yells at me. It makes me laugh because I know it's for my own good."
The United forward featured for France in the 3-2 win over Netherlands in Amsterdam on Friday, coming on for the second half when the away team were 2-0 ahead.
Martial set up the winning goal for Blaise Matuidi in the 87th minute and, discussing Deschamps, who gave the player his international debut against Portugal just three days after joining United, Martial said: "[He said] what are you waiting for, with the qualities you have? It would be a huge waste."
Martial also said that his former coach at Monaco, Leonardo Jardim, was a tough taskmaster. He added: "He was very hard with me -- that's what I needed."
