Since the start of the 2020/2021 season, Anthony Martial has been in poor form, and his poor form has continued into the 2021/2022 season. In a midweek EFL cup third round match against West Ham United, he had a horrible performance, and Man United were knocked out by the Hammers.
Anthony Martial has yet to score or assist in Manchester United's last five games, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must make a difficult decision to ensure the Frenchman returns to form by making him the club's captain for these three reasons.
1. He is one of the team's longest-serving players: Anthony Martial is one of Manchester United's longest-serving players. At the age of 19, the 25-year-old striker joined Manchester United. Many Man United fans are unaware that Anthony Martial is one of the club's most senior players in terms of playing time.
Only Phil Jones and David De Gea have played for Manchester United for longer than Anthony Martial, and he deserved to be named captain.
2. To boost his confidence: Anthony Martial is going through one of his worst periods in his career, and he needs his teammates and manager to keep him going. Giving Anthony Martial the captaincy of Manchester United will boost his confidence and encourage him to improve his game in order to live up to the expectations of a hardworking captain.
3. To give him a sense of belonging: Manchester United fans are undoubtedly dissatisfied with Anthony Martial's recent performances, and even his teammates have lost faith in him.
Remember that in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first season as Man United manager, Anthony Martial was one of the hottest strikers in the Premier League, scoring over 20 goals. Unfortunately for the Red Devils, things grew tougher, and Anthony Martial went out of form, and he's still fighting to reclaim his goal-scoring form from the previous two seasons.
