Thierry Henry makes big claim about Anthony Martial at Man United
Thierry Henry claims that Anthony Martial is already a better player than he was at his age
Thierry Henry has admitted that Anthony Martial is a much better player than he was at his age, and is backing the striker to shine at Manchester United.
The French striker has made a strong start to life at Old Trafford since arriving at the club from Monaco under Louis van Gaal in the summer of 2015.
Martial struggled to hold down a regular spot in the first team under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United last season but he has started this campaign strongly.
The 21-year-old has scored five goals and made four assists for Manchester United so far this term, even if his first-team opportunities have been somewhat limited.
And Arsenal legend Henry is backing Martial to enjoy a sparkling career at Old Trafford because of the promise he has shown.
Henry is quoted as saying by the Daily Star: “Anthony Martial is a far better player than I was at that age.
“Martial can be world class.”
Martial will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action after the international break with a crunch clash against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday 14 October.
The Red Devils have been in strong form so far this season, winning six of their opening seven Premier League games to leave them second in the table.
