Paul Scholes hailed Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his role in transforming Anthony Martial.

The French striker bagged the winning goal in United’s 2-1 win over LASK on Thursday night to move onto 23 goals for the season in all competitions.

Scholes believes Solskjaer deserves credit for transforming Martial into a striker who is so hungry to score goals.

“He’s been terrific this season, probably one of the players of the season for Manchester United and tonight was no different,” Scholes told BT Sport.

“I’ve been really impressed with Martial, I know he’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I really like him and I think he’s been brilliant this season. Hopefully there’s a lot more to come from him, not only in the next two weeks but also next season as well.

“I think when Ole first came in, I don’t think Martial was hungry enough for goals. I don’t think he lived on goals, even in training maybe he wasn’t doing his finishing and doing his practising.

“I think Ole has really put that into him because he knows what he is capable of. He’s quick, he’s skilful, he can fly past people, he’s very difficult to play against but he’s added to his finishing and his goalscoring.

“There is no doubt that this season he has really done that and there was a little nod to Ole after the goal to show that.”
