Rabat – Jérémy Toulalan, Monaco’s midfielder, said that Anthony Martial will bring surprising performances to his new team Manchester United.
Speaking in a press conference on Wednesday, Toulalan had words of praise for his former teammate.
”When you see what he’s doing right now, it’s annoying for us and that’s good for him. I wish him the best. Everyone was inevitable surprised by his integration with United but he has enormous qualities, said the French player.
“And everyone knew, in Monaco as in Lyon, his qualities. When you are a good player like him, it does not surprise me. He has lot of talent and is a good person. He is listening and he’ll still be astonishing,” he added.
Anthony Martial has indeed left a mark and shown those “enormous qualities” in his top-level debut with Manchester United. The former Monaco player signed with the Red Devils on deadline day during the last transfer window.
The British club paid EUR 80 million for the Frenchman’s transfer, becoming the most expensive teenage player in football history. After negative comments that labeled his purchase amount as a “hallucinating offer”, United’s new No. 9 man has silenced his critics and proven his worth.
Martial has scored 4 goals in his first 4 matches this season accompanied by outstanding moves on the pitch that some have said reminds them of French legend Thierry Henry.
The 19-year-old striker continues to earn his place, the respect of his peers, and the love of the fans.
