Manchester United made a £38million move for the then little-known Anthony Martial of AS Monaco, the striker is certainly known much better already, after making an outstanding goalscoring debut against Liverpool, and backing that up against Southampton and Ipswich.
Louis van Gaal has had his say on Martial, and credited his fantastic start to a few key factors.
Louis van Gaal has put Anthony Martial’s flying start at Manchester United down to “luck, quality and an open personality”.
Anthony Martial certainly has made a fantastic start to life at his new club, and it wasn’t really expected. Yes, you expect quality when Manchester United splash £38million on a 19-year old, but to score four in four in the manner that he has done has been fantastic to watch.
Hopefully he can kick on, continue to develop and really establish himself as a first-team regular already.
