Frenchman ‘looked like a Ferrari’ Manchester United fans told as £100 million claim made
Manchester United star Anthony Martial looked a “£100 million player” and was labelled a “Ferrari” by Owen Hargreaves
France forward Martial won the penalty from which Bruno Fernandes scored to send United to the semi-finals via a 1-0 extra-time win in Cologne on Monday.
It is just another impressive performance by the Frenchman this season, as he looks to make sure that he is considered to be the clubs number one at the start of the new season next month.
And former United midfielder Hargreaves was effusive in his praise when commenting on Martial’s fine performance as part of his role as a pundit for BT Sport: “Everyone’s got an opinion on Martial. He’s a Ferrari,” he said.
“He just looked like a £100 million player.”
His performance also drew applause from manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has been impressed by the 24-year-old striker’s development over the course of the season.
“He was sharp,” the Norwegian coach told reporters.
“Anthony has developed throughout the season, he was involved with the penalty.
“He’s impossible to stop at times when he gets the ball into his feet and he drives at people, his balance, he can go either way.
“The only thing now is to put that ball in the back of the net again. I’m delighted with his performance, though.”
Martial has developed alot over the past 12 months and looks like a world class player, but that shouldnt stop United trying to sign a new striker this summer, as they are lacking in quality in attack beyond the front three.
