Weghorst Finally Reveals Why He Came To Man United After His Discussion With Ten Hag About Martial
Wout Weghorst has described Antony Martial as “injury-prone”, the reason he has featured more than he had expected for Man United.
Weghorst said: “All Ten Hag said was that he needed a striker who could fit into his way of playing. He certainly did not paint the picture as it is now. Anthony Martial was his striker and he was doing fine – but he is injury-prone and the manager wanted all positions double-staffed.

“That’s what I came for. But Ten Hag did say clearly ‘It is up to you. You can force things and the best one plays.’ My dream has always been to get the most out of my career. To tap my ceiling. It makes me incredibly proud and happy.”
The Dutchman has started all 18 games since joining on a short loan from Burnley. Martial, meanwhile, hasn’t featured in almost two months.
