What Anthony Martial did to Manchester City fans after scoring Manchester United winner

Anthony Martial goaded Manchester City's supporters by holding up two fingers after scoring a winning goal during 2 -1 Manchester derby. The French forward doubled United's score on the 29-minute of the clash. It was his sixth goal in 13 games for the Red Devils this season, making him the second top scorer behind Marcus Rashford, who netted 13 times. While celebrating his goal, Martial held up two fingers on one hand, showing zero with another one and directing it to the City fans. The 24-year-old's last performances against Sheffield United, Aston Villa and the Citizens, became a topic of discussion between Gary Neville and Roy Keane in the Sky Sports studio. Neville said: "With Martial, I think Jose Mourinho would have maybe sold him or swapped him last season. I think the club probably dug their heels in, which was probably the start of the dispute between them with them overruling the manager. Myself, I'm confused whether he is a world-class striker or whether he is someone who is just pretending to be something. Even today, you look at him and think he's a fantastic player who is cool, with great composure, he's strong and he can hold the ball. Then other weeks you look at him and it's different. There is definitely a persistence that needs to occur with Martial in the sense that he has to have his chance because the idea of selling him and him coming back to bite you, which he could do, is something that you can't risk. So I think that is the reason why they have kept him and are always giving him his opportunity." Kane, on the other hand, was more critical. "The key for any player when you talk about a big club, you don't know what you're going to get with him, and they are no good for you. I wouldn't hang my hat on him. I'm not convinced by him. He's had many chances, hasn't he? How long do you wait when you are Manchester United?" he replied.
