Martial reveals text message from Solskjaer that motivated him to improve as centre-forward

The Frenchman has revealed a private message from Ole a year ago. 

The gaffer asked him whether he needed the No.9 shirt and demanded that Martial must win it. 

Reviewing a discussion with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a year ago, Anthony Martial told Canal+: "He [Solskjaer] sent me a message, he said 'would you like to take your no.9 shirt back?' 

"I straight up said yes! I said yes and he disclosed to me currently it's dependent upon you to show me [that you merit it] each time you're on the pitch." 

The French striker has unquestionably demonstrated his value as our No.9, scoring 21 objectives in all rivalries remembering 16 for the Premier League for United this season. 

He's been ablaze since the season restart and looks resolved to arrive at the 25-goal mark which Solskjaer requested from him before this season.

A few fans have reacted to respond to the post and here are some collection of some interesting remarks:

he is becoming a class player I still think he needs be more physically aggressive but a key player for us there is no limit to how good he can become.
