Paul Ince: 'Anthony Martial can be better than Eden Hazard'

Manchester United striker Anthony Martial has been recalled to the France squad following his fine form for the Red Devils over the last month.

Martial has completed an unlikely U-turn at Manchester United this season, winning the club's October Player of the Month award despite his agent suggesting he had no future at Old Trafford over the summer.

The Frenchman only started one of United's first six Premier League matches this season, but he has now scored five goals in his last four league appearances to help his team recover from a slow start.

And speaking on Martial's U-turn at the club, Mourinho has revealed he set a hard path for his player in order for him to realise his "phenomenal talent".

Martial, 22, was not selected in the squad for this summer's tournament and won his last cap in March.

And France boss Didier Deschamps agrees with Mourinho that Martial's rough patches have made him a better player. He knows it and I've told him.

'It was just a question of him understanding what a top player is because there is a big difference between a top talent and a top player'.

The 22-year-old star has found back of the net on five occasions in his last six appearances for Red Devils, with the France global bouncing back from a hard start to the campaign to become more a starter in Jose Mourinho's first eleven.

"We're still talking about a young player who, I hope, is in the process of gaining a certain maturity", said Deschamps.

'What he's now achieving with Manchester United is closer to what he's able to do regularly.

Inter are reportedly in pole position for Manchester United's Anthony Martial, who may not sign a new contract. It's obvious by Jose Mourinho's choice [to start Martial] and what he's doing on the pitch'.

The friendly against Uruguay will be played at the Stade de France on Tuesday, November 20.
