Gary Neville responds to Anthony Martial’s exchange for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg at Manchester United
Gary Neville said on Twitter that he wouldn’t trade Manchester United striker Anthony Martial for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
The Sky Sports expert suggested he would be ready to let Martial go given the players United have now.
However, the former United defender has said he will not trade France international striker Martial for Danish international midfielder Hojbjerg.
Martial isn’t having the best times at United, and we shouldn’t be surprised if the 25-year-old is sold next summer.
The Red Devils now have a lot of attacking options, and when everyone’s in good shape, the former AS Monaco star is unlikely to have much playing time.
The United No.9 has made a Premier League start so far this season and has made 17 league starts in 2020-21.
What Neville’s tweet shows is how much he rates – or does not rate – Hojbjerg.
Hojbjerg is an important player in the Tottenham squad and is one of the first names on the squad sheet when he is fit and available.
Hojbjerg scored two goals and given four 38 Premier League assists for Tottenham last season, and has played six times in the league so far this campaign.
