Solskjaer announces Man United to excite as Martial gets Ronaldo comparison from legend

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed the current Manchester United squad could excite for years.

Solskjaer has transformed this current United side into one of the best in the Premier League and continued his great start to life as Red Devils boss by picking up his tenth win in eleven matches, with a draw the only blemish on his record.

Two goals from Paul Pogba and one from Anthony Martial gave United a 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday, and moved the Red Devils back into the top four spot, which many cannot believe considering they were so far behind under Jose Mourinho.

Now Solskjaer insists the current crop of players could continue for the next five or more years, given their age.

He told Sky Sports: “I’ve always looked further ahead. I’ve followed United since I signed for them as a player. Of course I look at the squad, players, who can produce and perform now, next year and in two years?

“Even here you’ve got players who can perform for five, six, seven, eight, nine years because it’s such a young squad, an exciting squad.

“At the moment I’m just concentrating on getting us up the table, we’re fourth, let’s hope we can stay there and go higher.”

Meanwhile, United legend Gary Nevile compared Martial to Cristiano Ronaldo after another great performance.

The Frenchman has really come alive under the Guidance of Solskjaer and is looking every bit the player which United paid £50 million for all those years ago, despite the fact that Mourinho had no faith in the winger.

And after another fine performance was capped off with a solo goal, in which Martial skipped past two challenges, sped into the penalty area and curled a precise finish beyond Sergio Rico, Neville has compared the Frenchman to the great Ronaldo.

‘Magic from Martial!’ said Neville on the Metro website.

‘He’s been a threat in the first 20 minutes like you wouldn’t believe.

‘I remember Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a goal over the far side some years ago that wasn’t too dissimilar – this is equally as brilliant. It’s puts Manchester United into a fantastic position.’
