Van Gaal Delighted at Martial Transfer  

Despite claiming all summer that he doesn’t need another striker, the signing of 19 year old Frenchman, Anthony Martial, has delighted the Manchester United coach.

Van Gaal has stated:

“Anthony is a naturally talented, young, multi-functional forward with great potential. We have been watching him for a while now and he has developed immensely during his time at AS Monaco.”

 “I am delighted he has joined Manchester United as I believe this is the right club for him to continue his development as a young player. He has all the attributes to become a top football player; however we need to give him time to adjust to his new environment and the rhythm of the Premier League.”

 Martial is the world record transfer for a teenager, costing United £36 million from A.S. Monaco, and is one of the most talented young strikers in the world.

Martial went on to say how proud he is to be a part of the Manchester United team.

The French wunderkind said:

“I don’t feel the pressure. I know there is pressure but I’m ready for it. I’m very happy because it’s a big club in England. I’m very proud. I’m very happy because I worked hard for this and my family is very happy about it. I spoke with the coach, Louis van Gaal, and I know that I need to work very hard. “

“It’s not easy to speak about myself but I am a very fast player. I hope that everything will go well for me at this club. I’m very happy because the supporters are great here. I will be ready when the time comes.”

Hopefully Martial will play a key role in Manchester United’s starting eleven this season as he is now most exciting Red Devil prospect.

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
