Jose Mourinho has congratulated Anthony Martial on returning to the France squad and revealed he played mind games with the winger to help him reach the next level.

Martial has scored in four consecutive Premier League games and won the club's player of the month award for October.

And speaking on Martial's U-turn at the club, Mourinho has revealed he set a hard path for his player in order for him to realise his "phenomenal talent".

Martial won the last of his 18 caps in a friendly against Russian Federation, while missing the successful World Cup campaign in Russian Federation this summer, Xinhua reported on Thursday.

"I never gave up", he told MUFC.

"It's been a while since he's been in the French team, with good periods and more hard periods", said coach Didier Deschamps of Martial's return to the worldwide fold.

'I knew that for him to become a really top player, he needed to overcome some barriers that I put on the road for him. "It also shows we've got a big group of players who can come into the squad".

Martial was out of favour under Jose Mourinho at United, but he has found his way back into the team in the past month and impressed. He's experienced both good and bad times, which is also the case for his club, ' Deschamps said.

Anthony Martial can be "as good, if not better than Eden Hazard" after proving his "world-class" pedigree at Manchester United, says Paul Ince.

"What he's now achieving with Manchester United is closer to what he's able to do regularly".

"He is still a young player, but one who, I hope, is seeing the importance he has taken in Manchester in recent weeks".

And he has been further rewarded for an upturn in his performances with a place in the France squad for their Nations League clash against Netherlands and a friendly with Uruguay.
