Manchester United hero: “Martial is that guy!”

Manchester United Football Club made a bold move in the transfer market when the club sanctioned a huge £38million to bring Anthony Martial to Old Trafford. The striker was relatively unknown until about a month ago, and that has now changed dramatically.

One of the clubs greatest ever defenders knows about the problems strikers like Martial has to offer, and Rio Ferdinand is full of praise for the new Manchester United hero.

“Pace nowadays is a god send, Martial is that guy!” Rio Ferdinand said.

He’s right, too. Defenders don’t like forwards running at them directly, and that was evident on his debut. He went past three defenders with relative ease and then cooly slotted home.

Lets not forget that yes just 19. He has a huge future and has the potential to go an awfully long way in this game. If he keeps his head screwed on and his feet on the ground, we could have a real star on our hands.
