Melanie Da Cruz, the wife of Manchester United ace Anthony Martial, has liked a comment under one of her TikTok videos that calls for Zinedine Zidane to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager.
Martial has struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford so far this season, with the forward having to play second fiddle to Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Frenchman was similarly underwhelming last year, so much so that veteran striker Edinson Cavani superseded United's number nine by the end of the campaign.
With little in the way of first-team action, one might expect that Martial and club boss Solskjaer aren't exactly the best of friends at the moment.
Melanie's recent TikTok activity would appear to back up that assertion.
The 25-year-old's wife posted a video to TikTok of her getting a manicure and wishing all of her followers a good day.
In response to the video, a follower commented: "Tell Anthony the sun will shine again when Zidane arrives."
This was subsequently liked by Melanie, which didn't go unnoticed by a number of United supporters.

Whether this was simply a 'like' to thank a fan for supporting her husband, or instead, a more pointed critique of Solskjaer, it is definitely an indication of the pair's frustration at the current situation.
Martial has been linked with a January loan move away from the club, which would give the former Monaco man a better opportunity to play regularly.
"I don't think it's right to go into individual performances," Solskjaer told the media when asked about Martial's recent form.
"Anthony was the same as the rest of the team: we played some nice football, we lacked some of that cutting edge and he knows what we want from him. He'll keep working and get his chances."
Contrary to popular belief, the Norwegian manager insists that Martial is very much in his long-term plans.
