According to the France national team manager, the Manchester United footballer is “back at a very, very good level.”

Anthony Martial might have not been one of the lucky selected to play and win the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

But this snub was good for him, as he started to get better and better.

The French footballer had a slump during the last days Jose Mourinho managed Manchester United.

But under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer coaching style, he has found his level once again.

At least this is what France national team manager Didier Deschamps thinks.

“It’s always difficult to know what can happen, but all players can have a period when they are less successful on the pitch,” Deschamps told Sky Sports during an event in Monaco.

“It’s certainly related to confidence, it can be related to the relationship they have with their coach. It happens every season, for all players.”

“Anthony Martial is back at a very, very good level,” he added.

“He is a player who was with us at Euro 2016. He was not there for the World Cup but he is one of the players we regularly follow.”

Ferguson is a god at the club: Nicky Butt

The former Manchester United footballer believes Sir Alex is the biggest legend his club has had in history.

“He is a young player who is gaining maturity, also because he started very early in Manchester United and with the French national team too,” the French boss said.

“There are always difficult moments but in terms of potential, he has everything you need to be at the highest level.”

“No, it happens with other players (to play in different positions with the club and the national team),” he said changing the topic to N’Golo Kante.

“I saw that his coach preferred to see him in a more offensive position because he has a player, Jorginho, who plays in this position a little lower.”

“N’Golo Kante is able to play in several positions. He is a modern player, a modern midfielder,” he explained.

“When he is with me in the French national team, he has great importance in his lower position. He is very important defensively and in the organization of the game.”
