The jilted ex-girlfriend of Manchester United star Anthony Martial has branded his new lover ‘disgusting’ after the footballer ended weeks of speculation by confirming their relationship across social media.
Samantha Jacquelinet, who shares two children with Martial, lashed out at reality TV star Melanie Da Cruz on Sunday, claiming she intentionally targeted the footballer – a £58 million purchase for United in 2015 – despite knowing he was not single.
She told The Sun: ‘I asked her to stay away from him when we were having some problems and she agreed that she would. But she wasn’t true to her word. She claims it’s not just about sex with them – it’s love.

‘I will never be friends with Melanie, her behaviour has been disgusting.’
Martial is understood to have ended his four relationship with Samantha over the summer after falling for the French TV star, a regular on French show Les Anges.
But it was on Friday that the couple finally confirmed their romance in a brief Snapchat video after previously suggesting they were together in a series of posts taken during a recent holiday in Greece.

She said suspicion were raised after Martial began regularly watching the reality series before noticing mysterious new numbers on his mobile phone.
The situation came to a head when the footballer blocked her number while on international duty with France at Euro 2016.
‘When he came home he was really cold and said I had been getting on his nerves and he didn’t want to be with me any more,’ she recalled.

Samantha, 23, has since warned that Melanie, who grew up in the same Paris suburb as Martial, will not be given an opportunity to see her daughter with the footballer –14-month old Toto.
‘I’ll never let her be a part of my little girl’s life,’ she added.
