Former Manchester United star Louis Saha has slammed Anthony Martial for trying to pursue a fresh challenge away from Old Trafford this summer. The France international found himself out of favour under Jose Mourinho during the second half of last season and his agent has recently suggested that he could part ways with the Mancunian giants. In regards to this, Saha believes his compatriot should have more patience in order to realise his ambition with the Red Devils, he said: “I think it’s a shame to see him wanting to leave already.

Former Manchester United star Louis Saha has hailed the qualities of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has maintained his performance levels despite his trailing age. The Portugal international has already surpassed the age of 33 but this has not hampered his progress on the playing field with Real Madrid.

The stats are something but just the intensity that he
Belgium footballer Romelu Lukaku reportedly raged at his Manchester United teammates following last weekend’s 1-0 Premier League defeat at the hands of Chelsea. The 24-year-old failed to score for the Red Devils for a seventh game on the trot with little service from the players behind them. Lukaku ended the match without a single touch in the Chelsea box, and he made his feelings clear in the dressing room following the game. The defeat was only United’s second of the Premier League campaign after Morata popped up with a brilliant header to secure three points for Antonio Conte’s men.
Tom Heaton has hailed his time with Premier League giant, Manchester United as a huge contributing factor to his time at Burnley.
The goalkeeper was one of the 24 players former Red Devils manager Sir Alex Ferguson took to Russia for their 2008 Champions League final clash against Chelsea. He was the third choice goalkeeper, so he merely followed the team everywhere. He was on the stands in Luzhniki Stadium alongside other stars like French star Louis Saha, Barcelona defender Gerard Pique, Chris Eagles, Park Ji-sung, Danny Welbeck and others.
Louis Saha isn’t exactly shy about blaming who he believes is the core issue of this team’s core issues and who he believes needs to be replaced.
Saha has publicly stated that he firmly believes a management change was firmly needed at Manchester United and didn’t stop very short of blaming Louis Van Gaal.
Louis Saha says he does not want to leave Everton despite interest from Turkish side Besiktas.
The 30-year-old France striker has endured another injury-hit campaign and Besiktas revealed this week that they were hoping to tempt the player away from Goodison Park.
However, Saha feels that he owes David Moyes a debt after he brought him to the club from Manchester United last summer and he says has no intention of moving on.
‘I haven’t been contacted by anyone,’ he told the French media.
‘I want to repay Everton and David Moyes for giving me my chance.
Everton striker Louis Saha has admitted he was troubled mentally during his time at Manchester United.
The Frenchman endured an injury-ravaged spell with the Red Devils and said that the mental challenge of trying to constantly get back to full fitness as well as keeping the club and the fans happy took its toll on him. Thankfully at Everton he’s managed to stay out of the Everton Hospitality seats for too long!
Everton forward Louis Saha is enjoying a resurgence in form at present, though the deadly striker is not about to be swept off his feet by a recall to the France squad, despite admitting that it gives him pleasure to be back in amongst les Bleus.
Louis Saha could earn a recall for Everton’s trip to Blackburn on Saturday but Johnny Heitinga is a doubt.
Saha was only on the bench for the midweek draw at Spurs but boss David Moyes could be tempted to bring him back into the starting line-up for the trip to Ewood Park at the expense of Yakubu.
Heitinga, meanwhile, was forced off early into the second half against Villa and is still struggling with injury ahead of this weekend’s game so Jack Rodwell, Tony Hibbert and Joseph Yobo are on stand-by to replace him.
