Anthony Martial opened up on his relationships with "disrespectful" Jose Mourinho and "traitor" Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a candid interview.

The 26-year-old had a fine start to his Old Trafford career when he was signed by then manager Louis Van Gaal, scoring 17 goals in 49 appearances.

However, the Frenchman struggled to replicate his debut season in subsequent years under the next two Red Devils bosses, even having a public spat with one of them.

Speaking to France Football, Martial did not mince words as he vented his pent-up frustration with the current Roma head coach.

"It started with the story of the shirt number. During the holidays, he [Mourinho] sent me a message to ask if I want to change to the number 11, explaining to me that it is great because it was worn by Ryan Giggs, a club legend.

"I told him that I had the greatest respect for Giggs but I preferred to keep the number nine. When I returned to the club, I saw my name with the number 11, the story did not end well.

"He [Mourinho] lacked direct respect for me. He talked about me in the press, little phrases, a bit like he had done with Karim Benzema at Real Madrid. He liked these little games, but he also knew who he was doing it with.

"He knew that I was then 20 years old, that if I said something, I would be seen as the young person who lacked respect," he said.

Under Solskjaer, who replaced the Portuguese in 2018, Martial briefly improved his form but the Norwegian was also not spared from his criticism.

"I regularly played injured. People didn’t know it, I couldn’t accelerate during the four months following the COVID-19 season," he added.

"The coach [Solskjaer] told me he needed me, so I play. But, given my game, if I can’t accelerate, it becomes very complicated all the same. And when I was criticised by fans, the coach never bothered to tell the media.

"Obviously, I ended up getting injured for good and when I came back, I didn’t play anymore. I took it very badly, I had a feeling of injustice, you were asked to sacrifice yourself for the team and behind the scenes you were dismissed.

"For me, it was almost treachery. That’s all I hate. I can be blamed, but not for being fake."
