Ander Herrera says that Anthony Martial is the fastest player he has ever lined up with on the same team.
Martial has enjoyed a positive start to life in the Premier League since his big-money transfer to United from Monaco back in September.
The 19-year-old has quickly become known in England for his searing pace and finishing ability.
And Herrera says that the teenager is the quickest player he has ever played alongside.
Asked who the fastest player he has ever lined up with, Herrera told United’s website: “I think it’s Anthony Martial.”
The Spaniard also revealed that either Theo Walcott or Aaron Lennon were the quickest players he has ever played against.
He added: “Maybe Walcott or Lennon – one of them.”
Herrera will be hoping to feature when United return to Premier League action with a trip to Watford on Saturday lunchtime.
The Red Devils are currently fourth in the table and two points behind leaders and local rivals Manchester City.
