Ten Hag Backs Martial, Weghorst To Fire Manchester United To Glory

Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag is confident that Anthony Martial and Wout Weghorst can lead Manchester United to the promise land.

Martial has endured an injury-ravaged season and is expected to be out of the clash against Leeds United on Wednesday.

He has made only 14 appearances for Manchester United in all competitions this season, he is yet to complete a full game.

Ten Hag is confident Martial can overcome his fitness problems to come good for the club.

“He is not always available, but also I see the other side when he is available. He was never 100 per cent this season but he had a big impact every time he is available, even when he is at 80, 85, 90 per cent,” Ten Hag told reporters.

“So we do everything and Anthony Martial is doing everything. I think Anthony Martial is the player who has spent the most hours at Carrington this season, to recover, to get back, it is really a pity for him.”

Wout Weghorst joined on loan from Burnley in January, he has scored once in six games for the club.

“Wout Weghorst is doing a real good job for us in pressing,” Ten Hag said

“His offensive movements are very good and he is the one who makes players around him play better, to create spaces, and also he had some contributions in the box.

“As a team, we have to work better to anticipate his movements because his movements are good, quite a lot of times he was close.

He had many good actions and already a lot of good contributions to our results.

The Red Devils will face rivals Leeds United on Wednesday, while the second leg holds on Sunday.
