O'Hara labels £36m star as 'shocking', days after saying Tottenham should sign him
Jamie O’Hara has told TalkSPORT that Anthony Martial was “shocking” for Manchester United on Sunday – days after he suggested him as a signing for Tottenham. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side drew with Southampton. Last week, O’Hara said Tottenham should go after Martial – and now, he is “shocking”.
Martial, 25, has excellent at times for United in the five years he has spent at Old Trafford. But last season, he scored just seven goals in 36 games and this season – he is yet to register a goal or an assist in two games. The Daily Star claim Tottenham want to sign Martial, who has a £50million price tag.
Speaking on TalkSPORT last week, O’Hara said: “Go in a different direction, and don’t call me crazy when I say this, like a Martial”. But a week after his previous comments, Tottenham-supporting pundit O’Hara was incredibly critical of the 27-time France international. United drew 1-1 with the Saints.
“Martial was shocking, really bad performance from him,” O’Hara said. “He just plays like he’s no bothered if he plays well or not – it’s a weird attitude. He plays like he doesn’t care if he’s good or not. He’s got so much talent, but not good enough – miles off it. Him and Lukaku are worlds apart.”
Tottenham can do better than Martial amid O’Hara comments
With nine days left in the transfer window, Tottenham look as if they’re going to be able to keep Kane. Who knows what might happen between then and now, but Kane played for Spurs on Sunday. They do, though, need cover for the England skipper with Carlos Vinicius returning to Benfica.
However, if United are serious about wanting as much as £50million for Martial – then they need to look elsewhere. It is a ridiculous price for a player that scored four Premier League goals last season. That is, even before his wages. Tottenham can do better, and end up spending less.
