Arsenal hero Emmanuel Petit has hit out at Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho over his treatment of Anthony Martial.

Petit believes Mourinho and the Frenchman’s United teammates are not giving him enough confidence, meaning he has taken a step back in his career for club and country.

He told talkSPORT: “Martial was very good the first months with Manchester United and since Mourinho has managed the team he’s not in the same position anymore. It’s a risk.

“Talent is something very important in football but you need to have confidence as well from team-mates and your manager.

“You have to be tough and strong in your mind.

“Mbappe is the leader of this generation.

“I would love it [for him to join Arsenal]. I remember two years ago we had almost the same example as Martial.”
