France forward, Anthony Martial has told Manchester United he would like to start more matches for the club but added that he is happier at Old Trafford than he was last season.
Martial has been recalled to the France squad for friendly matches against Wales and Germany because of his performance so far this season but all of his four Premier League goals had come as a substitute.
The former Monaco forward has only started once this season as he has shared duties with Marcus Rashford.
He told SFR Sport, “It’s easier to start the game.
“When you come off the bench, the other players are warmed up, they’re totally in the game, and you have to get into it straight away. I prefer to start the game I have more time to get myself into the game.
“I have faith in my qualities, and I think the manager has confidence in me, too, so it’s up to me to continue putting in good performances, and if I do that, I think I’ll play a bit more.
“We all prefer to play, even if at United when I come off the bench, I make a difference. I prefer to start games and show what I’m capable of.
“When you score and you’re a forward, you’re happy. It’s going well. Even though I’m a substitute, I play often.
“I’ve played three, two games in the Champions League I play one game in two. It’s going well. I’d like to play more — that’s going to come through my performances.
“I feel a lot better this season, and I hope I’m going to continue like that.
“If I’m with the squad, you’ll see I’m one of the first to have a laugh. But outside of that, I’m reserved; I don’t show my emotions too much. Even if you don’t see me smile, I’m still very happy.
“I have to concentrate more, I have to give everything, not hold anything back, really give everything. I think that will be how things will go well.”
