    According to the Daily Mirror, Gore clattered Martial with ‘a robust tackle’, which sparked a confrontation between the pair.

    Martial ‘lashed out’ at the youngster who stood his ground against the 26-year-old forward, before the French star ultimately apologised for his part in the incident.

    Ten Hag then intervened and told midfielder Gore that tackling first team players was off-limits.

    Martial is expected to play a key role for United once their season resumes after the World Cup.

    With Cristiano Ronaldo’s days at the club appearing numbered, the French forward could be handed a fresh opportunity to prove himself as Ten Hag’s most trusted forward.

    The France forward had hoped that he might receive a late call to Didier Deschamps’ World Cup squad following the late injury to Karim Benzema.

    However, the decision was made for France to progress into the tournament with just 25 players, giving Martial the chance to be ready to hit the ground running for United next month.
