Moment Anthony Martial caught telling the ball-boy to calm down and waste time against Liverpool.
In ‘high-end time-wasting,’ Anthony Martial shrewdly instructed the ball boy to slow down during Manchester United’s decisive victory against Liverpool on Monday. Examine it below:

After the break, Martial rejoined the action and had a major impact on his team’s second goal.
To make it 2-0, he skillfully slipped the ball to Marcus Rashford, who sent a shot past Alisson.
However, Martial made other contributions to the game as well, including a late display of his time-wasting abilities.
Martial saw the ball leave the field of play for a corner kick after a battle with Liverpool defender Kostas Tsimikas.
The Frenchman instructed the little youngster to slow down in order to squander a little bit of time as the ball boy recovered the ball.
Before giving the ball boy a hug, he made a gesture.
Martial then went calmly to the corner flag as Man United held on for the victory and their first Premier League point of the new campaign.
It differs greatly from Anthony Elanga’s strategy, which allowed his opponents launch a counterattack during their humiliating loss to Brentford.
Naturally, Martial’s encounter with the ball boy sparked internet discussion among Man United supporters.
“High-end waste timing from my king Tony,” one person tweeted.
“It just shows how far the staff has grown and gotten a bit savvier,” a third person remarked.
Elanga was mentioned by someone else as follows: “Elanga had his team 4-0 and was assisting the opposition initiate another rapid counterattack while his team members were still out of position like they were his team mate.”
At halftime, Martial took over for Elanga, and he immediately put on an exciting performance up front.
When they restart their season on Saturday against Southampton, Erik ten Hag’s starting XI may be forced to include him due to his strong second half performance.
