Anthony Martial

Former Barcelona and Arsenal striker Thierry Henry believes Anthony Martial is destined for greatness, and claims the Manchester United striker is already better than he was aged 21.

Martial has already scored five goals and provided six assists in his first nine appearances this season for the Red Devils.

His pace and intelligence on and off the ball drew immediate comparisons to Henry, following his move from Monaco in 2015.

Henry, who scored 175 goals during his time at Arsenal, believes Martial has enough class to reach the top.

“Anthony Martial is far better than I was at that age,” said Henry. “He can become a world class player.”

The 21-year-old is currently resting during the international break after picking up an injury in United’s 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.
