Anthony Martial took to social media to wish Marcus Rashford a happy birthday after the Manchester United starlet turned 19 on Monday.

Rashford has enjoyed an impressive rise to prominence since breaking into the first team at Manchester United under Louis van Gaal as an 18-year-old last season.

The teenager earned plenty of new admirers after he was drafted into the side last season and even earned a surprise call-up to the England squad for Euro 2016.

The 19-year-old has continued his impressive development under new manager Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford and has scored three goals in eight Premier League games so far this season for the Red Devils.

And United striker Martial was quick to wish Rashford all the best after he celebrated his birthday on Monday.

Martial posted the picture above of the duo on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Happy birthday bro 😀 @marcusrashford”
