Manchester United’s big money teenage signing is a true professional, on and off of the pitch. He managed to win over Red Devils fans on his debut with an incredible goal against United’s arch rivals, Liverpool. The Frenchman also put in a decent shift in the away trip to Eindhoven earlier in the week.
As it stands, Martial is Manchester United’s only true striker, and his team mate, Ander Herrera, says that he offers a unique option for the midfielders.
Speaking to MUTV, the Spanish midfielder said:
“Of course, the language is new for him, as it was for me last season,”
“But Morgan and Felli are helping him a lot.”
“I think he is a player who has some qualities that the rest haven’t got. So I think he can run into the spaces when the midfielders look forward.”
“We are always going to find him because he’s very quick, very mobile, so I think he is a very good player for us and is going to give us different options.”
With Wayne Rooney expected to return this weekend, following a hamstring injury, Martial could have the best support possible, to increase his goal tally. With Memphis Depay on the left, Juan Mata on the right and, Wayne Rooney sitting behind him, or alongside him, the French teen should get all of the help he needs to get a goal or two.
Manchester United’s next game is on Sunday, with an away trip to Southampton.
