Manchester United signed Anthony Martial from Monaco when Louis van Gaal was in charge of the club. Under the management of the Dutch boss, the French attacker failed to shine.
However, under Jose Mourinho, Martial has stepped up big time and this season, he has been absolutely fantastic.
So far, in 9 games in all competitions, the 21-year-old star has directly contributed in no fewer than 11 goals (5 goals and 6 assists).
Retired French international and Arsenal legend Theirry Henry has heaped praise on Anthony Martial and made a major claim about him.
The Gunners’ all time top scorer has stated that Martial has the potential to become a world class star. He said (Daily Star):
“Anthony Martial is a far better player than I was at that age,”
“Martial can be world class.”
Manchester United are currently second in the Premier League table, level on points with Manchester City but behind them on goal difference.
Mourinho’s men are looking very strong this season and should be considered one of the hot favorites to win the title. In your opinion, can Martial maintain top form all season? Has he got the potential to become world class?
