THE ex-girlfriend of Manchester United star Anthony Martial has told how the love rat had left her to bring up their baby alone.

Samantha Jacquelinet said her relationship with the French forward quickly collapsed following his £58million move to the Old Trafford club.


She said: “Everything changed. 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.”

Samantha, 23, said: “He had never looked at another girl before we moved and I’d never once doubted him, so the fact he’d cheated shook me to the core.”

He also moaned she was boring.

She added: “Anthony told me I was a grandma — that I didn’t like going out and he didn’t love me anymore.”

Since the split Samantha says Martial has seen Peyton just four times, including taking her and his parents on holiday to Guadeloupe.

She blamed his transformation on last year’s switch from French side Monaco.


She said: “I was told United was a family club but off the pitch he didn’t get any guidance. Manchester United have ruined my life.

“Neither of us were prepared for it at all. Everywhere we went people would stop Anthony for pictures and his Instagram followers rocketed to more than two million.

“Other big clubs like to offer support to players in managing their social media but we were offered nothing.

“He was getting a dozen pictures a day on Instagram from girls. They sent sexy photos begging him to get in touch.

“These girls don’t care about a player’s family or the woman he’s with, they want the designer handbags, shoes and media attention that seeing a footballer brings.”

Yet despite the image, Samantha branded £5million-a-year Martial “stingy”.


She said: “When we split I tried to work things out. He said I only wanted him for his money.

“But he was so stingy. Anthony told me he rent a house for me. I found one outside Paris, but when I got the keys he said he was only going to give me £3,000 a month. He earns £420,000 every month.

“Anthony has changed completely from the modest, shy and loving young man I met in Monaco and I firmly believe if we’d stayed there then we would still be together.”

“We lived a nice life with privacy. We both liked being at home and not going out to flash bars and restaurants. Anthony never even drank alcohol.”

Samantha met Martial when he was just 17. After a year together she fell pregnant.

Daughter Peyton was born two months early in June last year.

She weighed just 3lb 5oz and spent her first few days in an incubator.

Samantha said: “Finding out I was pregnant was a good surprise. Anthony was 18 and I was 21 but we couldn’t wait to be parents.

“When Peyton was born it was touch and go. I had an emergency caesarean and was in a wheelchair for days. But Anthony was so strong for both of us.

“He changed Peyton’s nappies, cradled her and helped to feed her as well as helping me to shower and dress.

“He was amazing and it made our relationship stronger.”

They set up home in a rented four-bedroom Cheshire mansion with a pool and gym. But Samantha struggled to make friends.
