Erik ten Hag calls up four Man Utd youngsters to first-team training including kid who 'had spat with Anthony Martial' | The Sun

ERIK TEN HAG invited youngster Dan Gore and three other Manchester United academy stars to first-team training this week.

Marc Jurado, Omari Forson, and Sam Murray were the other starlets – but it was Gore's inclusion which was the most interesting.

Back in November, the midfielder, 18, clashed with Anthony Martial in a training session during the World Cup.

That could have made this week's session all the more interesting – given their history.

The pair's furious exchange was sparked when Gore flew into a tackle on the French forward.

Dutch tactician Ten Hag had told his squad that tackles on the first team were forbidden.

But, Gore didn't listen to the warning and reportedly went in hard on Martial, according to the Daily Mirror.

The former Monaco star was said to have squared up to the teenager – as team-mates rushed in to pull the feuding two apart.

Any potential disagreement is believed to have been handled internally – with Martial apologising to Gore.

The 27-year-old missed Man Utd's game against Southampton, and is hoping regain fitness after being out of action since mid-January with a hip injury.

Talking about Martial's injury woes, ten Hag said: "Yeah, but I think all the time we had a good plan and it worked until now not always good.

"But he is on his way back, he’s back in training but we will be cautious.”

Meanwhile, Gore is yet to make a first team appearance for the Red Devils.

He was an integral part of Man Utd's U18 side – who won the FA Youth Cup against Nottingham Forest last season.
