Former France international defender William Gallas has claimed that Anthony Martial only has himself to blame for failing to earn a place in the squad for this summer's World Cup.
The 22-year-old was subsequently left out of Didier Deschamps's squad for this summer's tournament in Russia, but former Arsenal and Chelsea defender Gallas has urged the winger to learn from his omission.
"I don't feel sorry for him because he had the opportunity. He was in the squad many times before. I think he missed his chance go to the World Cup," he told Goal.com.
"He didn't perform at his best for the whole season. To go to the World Cup, you have to perform all season. You can't be up and down, that's what has made the difference. He is still young and maybe he will learn. He has great quality and it is a shame for him."
Martial started just 18 Premier League games for United in the season just finished, with a further 12 appearances coming off the bench.
