Speaking to MUTV, Anthony Martial said: “Bruno Fernandes and I always had that connection between us and we both just have to keep working to improve it. Well, that [assists] is something we always talk about.
“As he left to take part in the World Cup, I was telling him to make sure that he comes home in good shape. And he would say, of course, lots of assists are coming your way. That’s one of the things about sport, that chat.
“It’s very important to have good connections on the pitch. He knows very well that I might go to take the ball at someone’s feet, and he will run deep. It’s that kind of connection that helps you get to know the playing style of your partner.”
Martial, who was not included in France’s World Cup despite Karim Benzema’s injury, finally appears to be back to full fitness ahead of the crucial part of the 2022/23 season.
The 27-year-old striker was included in the starting XI of the Manchester United side that faced Nottingham Forest in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, with the Frenchman getting a goal in the 3-0 win.
