Here’s what Jose Mourinho had to say about Anthony Martial’s incredible display vs CSKA

Manchester United have continued with their impressive form, securing a big victory away against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.

Anthony Martial, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Romelu Lukaku with a brace sealed an important victory for the Red Devils on Wednesday night.

However, it was Martial who outperformed everyone, scoring one and taking part in the other three goals of United.

He was everywhere, making runs, beating defenders, creating chances, assisting and scoring.

And clearly Mourinho was happy with his performance after the match, saying that all conditions suited him to deliver that kind of performance.

“I think the game also adapted to his qualities,” the Portugese told BT Sport. “The way we played adapted to his qualities too, so he had lots of freedom and lots of support and quality around him too and I am happy.

“A goal is always important even on a penalty but his contribution was very good, a pity he couldn’t play for 90 minutes because I was ready let him play the whole game.

“We start so strong, I think we surprised them with our attitude and we killed the game, they didn’t look as good as they are because of us.” //Actuantes//
