Manchester United star Anthony Martial is currently on an individual training program ahead of his return to action, according to The Sun.

Erik ten Hag has previously used a separate regime for Jadon Sancho and helped the 22-year-old find his feet. The former Borussia Dortmund star missed a big chunk of the first half of the season.

However, since the turn of the year, the England international has been given ample opportunities in the side. He has performed well and the gaffer has been able to get the best out of the winger in recent fixtures.

Sancho has even been deployed in the number 10 position often in the last few games. In the 22-year-old’s last three Premier League appearances, he has scored two goals.

Now, Ten Hag has decided to put Martial on a similar course. The France international has struggled with injuries in the current campaign and has been unavailable for the most part.

The 27-year-old has made just 14 appearances in all competitions this term. He has found the back of the net six times and has provided two assists.

Unfortunately, the striker has not completed 90 minutes in any game under the new gaffer. As a result, Wout Weghorst, who United signed on loan from Burnley in January, has played a pivotal role.

Martial signed for the Red Devils in the summer of 2015 from AS Monaco. However, apart from a few decent seasons, the 27-year-old has been unable to fulfil his potential in Manchester.

Ten Hag has preferred the French national in the starting lineup whenever he has been available. However, the gaffer has not been able to rely on the striker on a consistent basis. Hopefully, the Dutch manager will finally be able to have the forward at his disposal for the rest of the campaign.
