Manchester United spent a huge amount of money to bring in the then little-known Anthony Martial over the summer, but since that day, the talented Frenchman has evolved into one of our key players in the starting line-up.
Juan Mata has been speaking to the media about life at United in general, and our smiling Spaniard has plenty of positives to say about the aforementioned Martial.
“Since day one that I have trained with Martial, I have felt that this guy has something special.” Juan Mata said. “Anthony has everything to succeed in football at this club. He’s quick, has goals, he can beat players & he understands football.”
Praise doesn’t get any higher, especially as the pair haven’t been playing together that long. However it does feel as though Manchester United have a real gem on their hands. Martial is still young, and if he keeps his feet firmly on the ground we could well have a world class player on our hands in a few years.
