Manchester United team-mate Ander Herrera believes that Anthony Martial can be “one of the best players in the world”.
Martial had a below average second season under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford – scoring 9 goals in 18 matches – leading to him being left out of France’s World Cup-winning squad and linked with a move away.
Despite Martial’s agent telling French media earlier this month that he wants to leave United, it seems that the club is not willing to sell him and has stressed that he is a part of their plans for the new season.
Herrera has been impressed by Martial’s start to pre-season and has backed him to rediscover his form this season.
“He’s very talented,” the Spanish midfielder stated. “He can be one of the best players in the world and I think he is very focused this season to smash it.
“When you have players like Anthony, like Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Alexis Sanchez, those kind of players that can change the game.”
“If one of them cannot play, we have three or four more so we have lots of options. I think we shouldn’t think that any other club in the Premier League has better players because at least we have as good as the opponents.
“Now it’s all about work, confidence, about keep playing like he did today. I am confident with them because they are all amazing players and Anthony looks very sharp.”
