Manchester United Football Club made one of the biggest transfer dealings in the clubs recent history as they sanctioned a £38million move for the little-known 19-year old, Anthony Martial. After the match, Louis van Gaal was asked about his best position, and he revealed the club do not know where that is yet.
“We don’t know yet.” Louis van Gaal said.
At the end of the day I honestly don’t think it takes a genius to work out where Anthony Martial is the most effective. We have to play our best players in their most influential positions at every situation, and at the moment we don’t have a bigger threat than Anthony Martial – so play him up top.
I think Louis van Gaal feels like he’s indebted to using Wayne Rooney because he’s his captain, and the stubborn man that he is makes it even tougher for him to drop the 29-year old striker, and thats probably why Martial is getting his chance to play as a number nine regularly.
