Hell earth no fury like a woman scorned.
Anthony Martial’s ex-partner Samantha Jacquelinet conducted an emotional interview with The Sun on Sunday today, in which she blamed the breakdown of their relationship on their move to England last year.
Martial joined Manchester United from AS Monaco last September, and seven months later he and Samantha had split up.

“Everything changed,” Samantha told The Sun on Sunday. “Footballers in England are like kings. They have so much money and attention it’s like they live in a different world. He was thrust into the limelight and it all just exploded. Young girls were throwing themselves at him.”
She added during the six-minute interview: “I was told United was a family club but off the pitch he didn’t get any guidance. Manchester United have ruined my life.”
Samantha’s interview comes just over two weeks after Martial’s brother, Johan, penned a lengthy public message on Instagram hitting out at her “lies”.

And now Anthony has reacted to Samantha’s latest Instagram post on Twitter, just a couple of hours after United’s 3-1 victory over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
“Lie just for money 😓” Martial tweeted, “but seriously you deserve an Oscar for your performance I laugh a lot thanks 😂”.
Martial, who provided two assists against Bournemouth this afternoon, has made it crystal clear that he doesn’t feel sorry for his ex-partner based on her interview.
By accusing her of lying, the France international clearly feels her version of events has been made up - or at least exaggerated in some way.
