Paul Scholes is quickly earning a reputation as a pundit who will not hold back, even when discussing his old club, Manchester United.
The legendary midfielder knows a thing or two about how strikers should ordinarily play having supplied countless through balls to some of the world’s greats, and he feels Anthony Martial still has a lot to learn to become a truly great forward.
At the moment Scholes believes the France international ‘doesn’t really look bothered’ whether he scores or not.
While the former England midfielder precedes this by saying that Martial is a player who likes to come outside the box and play out wide at times, he thinks the ex-Monaco man does not possess the right mentality for a striker.
The frontman, who turns 20 early next month, was on fire when he first joined the club, scoring three goals in his first two Premier League games, however he has since failed to hit the back of the net in the top flight, leading Scholes to conclude his comments on BT Sport by saying that perhaps Louis van Gaal needs to dip into the transfer market this January to find a striker who ‘lives for goals’ as the ex-United man puts it.
