Manchester United’s recent signing Anthony Martial almost missed his first start for the club after the team bus left without him ahead of last night’s Champions League defeat to PSV Eindhoven.
The France international, aged 19, has been touted as having an old head on young shoulders since his arrival at Old Trafford, but he showed distinctly teenage timekeeping when he reported late for the bus journey to the Philips Stadion.
Witnesses said the coach had left without Martial and had to perform a U-turn when United officials realised their £36m man was not onboard.
