Anthony Martial has huge potential at Man United, declares Nicolas Anelka

Anthony Martial is a top talent, according to former Arsenal striker Nicolas Anelka

Anthony Martial is one of the most talented players of his generation, according to Nicolas Anelka.

The 19-year-old has already established himself as one of the stars of the Premier League this season following his transfer to Manchester United from Monaco on deadline day earlier this month.

Martial has netted four goals and notched up one assist for the Red Devils after being deployed up front by United boss Louis van Gaal.

Much has been made about the French teenager’s potential since arriving at the club, and former Arsenal and Liverpool striker Anelka has been thoroughly impressed by what he has seen from the youngster thus far.

Anelka told Goal: “Anthony is a very good player and I’m sure he’ll do well for United.

“He is one of the most talented young players of his generation. He’ll get better and better!”

Martial will be hoping to feature when Manchester United take on Wolfsburg in the Champions League group stage on Wednesday night.

The striker has already notched up 205 minutes of Premier League football for his new club since arriving in a reported £36m deal.
