Martial has made a blistering start to his Man United career having scored three goals in three games since his £36m deadline day move.
The Frenchman scored a superb brace at St Mary’s on Sunday as United claimed a 3-2 win over Southampton.
Van Gaal praised Martial but revealed that he has enlisted some of the United squad to help with the language barrier.
“But he’ll learn to speak English and he’s adapting to the English culture. He has had a great start – three goals in three games.”
Martial had a huge amount of pressure on him thanks to his price tag but he has been nothing short of superb since his arrival at United. The youngster has pace in abundance but is also more than capable of holding the ball up for teammates. United’s attack has a different dimension with Martial in the side and he will undoubtedly keep his place in the starting XI if he keeps up his excellent form.
