Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal unhappy with "stupid" Anthony Martial

Louis van Gaal slams the "stupid" Anthony Martial for his penalty concession in Manchester United's 1-1 Champions League draw away to CSKA Moscow.

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has hit out at the "stupid" Anthony Martial for his handball which led to CSKA Moscow's penalty in tonight's 1-1 Champions League draw in Russia.

The 19-year-old striker handled inside the area on 15 minutes, with Seydou Doumbia converting the rebound after David de Gea kept out Roman Eremenko from 12 yards.

Martial, a £36m summer signing from AS Monaco, atoned for his error by equalising in the second half, but his goal did not square him with the Dutch manager.

"It was a stupid reaction from Anthony but before that maybe it was offside, I don't know," he told reporters.

"I thought it was offside, but I don't know. It was close. But the reaction, it's the first time that he did it and there always has to be a first time, but for us it was unlucky because I think we controlled the game.

"We don't play too fast, I think. The ball possession was too slow in the first half, but we improved in the second half and we scored a fantastic goal. We could have won, but 'could have' doesn't count in football."

The Red Devils sit joint second with CSKA in Group B, two points behind Wolfsburg.
