Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Anthony Martial has answered his critics following his excellent form for Manchester United this season.
Eyebrows were raised when Man United decided to pay Monaco an initial £36m for the relatively unknown Martial in the summer but the Frenchman has blown all expectations of him out of the water.
Martial scored his 13th goal for United in all competitions against Everton on Sunday and Wright praised the 20-year-old.
“Martial was brought in under a lot of pressure. He has answered the calls in terms of pressure on a youngster,” Wright said.
The youngster plays with an energy and presence of mind which belies his years and he deserves all the credit that is coming his way.
Martial’s goals and assists return this season has been remarkable given his tender age and United’s troubles going forward over the course of the campaign. There is no doubt that he will be a world-class player and it will be exciting to see how he develops at Old Trafford.
