Manchester United, and Anthony Martial, came under a lot of scrutiny this summer, due to the £36 million paid to A.S. Monaco for the transfer of the 19 year old striker.
The Frenchman has since played 4 games for Manchester United, 2 of which were brief substitute appearances, and has already got 4 goals. He’s already Manchester United’s joint top goal scorer this season, tied with United’s star forward Wayne Rooney.
United legend David Beckham has expressed his admiration for the new Red Devils sharpshooter.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, the free kick magician said:
“It is a great start for him,”
“He is 19 years old and the price-tag that he came into Manchester United with, he is living up to it at the moment.”
“I hope he continues as I am a Manchester United fan so I want to see him score more goals and become more successful. These are the type of players Manchester United are all about as one of the biggest clubs in the world.”
This weekend, Manchester United host the leakiest defence in the Premier League. Sunderland have conceded 13 goals in just 6 Prem games this season, and with Martial playing so well, there’s no limit to how many he could score.
