WILLIAM GALLAS has told Anthony Martial he did not deserve a France call-up in a brutally honest message.
The Manchester United forward, 22, is being linked with a summer exit after struggling this season and dropping to the bench.
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.
Martial arrived at Old Trafford to much fanfare and remains a fan favourite.
But his struggles have led some to question if he can fulfil his full potential in the North West.
