Speaking exclusively to our colleagues at RMC, Anthony Martial’s agent Philippe Lamboley commented on Manchester United’s decision to strip the French international of the #9 shirt upon the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
“I am not going to lie to you. Yes, it affected him. Yes, it surprised him. Yes, he was disappointed… for two days. But he is a professional. He knew to immediately get back to business. Personally, I did not accept this decision which I find misplaced and disrespectful vis-à-vis my player. This feeling, I made clear to the people at Manchester United. You simply do not do that. So we accept it, we turn the page, but are not broken up by it.”
