Anthony Martial can be Man Utd’s Thierry Henry, declares ex-striker.



Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha believes Anthony Martial can become a great player for the Red Devils as much as Thierry Henry was for Arsenal.

The 20-year-old, who sealed a move from Monaco to Old Trafford last summer, has scored seven goals and made three assists in 24 Premier League games so far for the Old Trafford club.

Speaking to United’s website, Saha said: “He has definitely got the quality and the platform for working really hard at Manchester United.

“When you get that, you get the experience under your belt of being at a big club and you get respected easier with France.

“When you see him, he has as much quality as Thierry Henry at this age.

“Thierry was a really decisive player and that is where Martial needs to work; he needs to be more precise and give more indication to his game.

“Everything seems to be easy for him: being on the ball, being strong, holding the ball at the right moments, getting important goals and being able to play week in and week out.

“He hasn’t played this many games during his career so he has done really well to adapt his physique."
