Saha feels it is not too late for his former club United to change their season
Interim manager Michael Carrick won 2-0 in his first game on the bench as United secured their place in the Champions League round of 16, and Martial made his chances of getting more playing time in no way hurt the cause trouble. the left wing.
United have been in miserable shape for the past two months, losing five of their last seven top flight matches to drop to eighth in the table, but Tuesday’s result was a step in the right direction.
Saha feels that it is not too late for the team to change its season, and has leaned in to take some momentum with Martial at the heart of its success.
Talking to 101greatgoals.com, Saha said: ‘Because the Premier League is a marathon, I still think they can get back into shape and go for a run.
“ When they finally find the right formula and things click, especially in their heads, where in the moment there is too much about thinking, those players are unstoppable when they play naturally.
‘In his game, no one can touch that front four or five. Martial, when he’s in top form, you can’t play. ”
Martial’s career at United seemed to be adrift when Solskjaer was in command, and the forward was reportedly increasingly frustrated by his lack of opportunities.
However, he looked strong on his return to the team this week, and now he may have a chance to shine at Stamford Bridge on Sunday when the Red Devils travel to league-leading Chelsea.
Ralf Rangnick agreed to a six-month deal to take over United on an interim basis on Thursday, but the German will not be available for Sunday’s trip to Chelsea.
