And 40-year-old Gallas – a runner-up in 2006 – told Martial he needs to learn from the experience.

He told Goal: “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 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.”

Tottenham, Chelsea, Arsenal, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have all been linked with Martial in recent weeks.

And with his spot going to winter arrival Alexis Sanchez, the Frenchman has a huge decision to make.
