Man Utd attacker Martial eager to improve his 'ugly' goalscoring

Manchester United attacker Anthony Martial is eager to improve his goalscoring.

Martial is flourishing in manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's free-flowing system, as was evident in his wonderful solo goal against Fulham on Saturday.

Asked about the importance of scoring more 'ugly' goals, Martial - speaking before United's last-16 Champions League tie against PSG - replied: "Yes it is true [Solskjaer] has often said that to me and even previous managers have said that, you have to work on that.

"If I do manage to do that, get beyond the defence, I think I will score more goals.

"He is asking me to attack more. That is my job after all. To make the difference to be more decisive.

"Things are working out well for the other attackers and I hope we can continue to be as effective."
