Blind: Martial can become a great

Anthony Martial’s teammate Daley Blind is of the opinion that the Manchester United striker has all the characteristics to become a great striker.

Since his big-money move from AS Monaco, Martial has managed to find the back of the net eight times in 27 appearances and has also managed to provide three assists.

“He is a big talent, he is still young and we cannot forget that. But you can see on the training pitch and even in the matches already how much quality he has,” Blind told the club’s official website.

“If he is working that hard like he is now, improving and improving each week, then he can become a really great striker. He is very quick of course, he is strong and I think he is really calm in front of the goal.”

“He has everything needed to become a great striker. Now he is evolving and performing in the training sessions, working hard on and off the pitch with his languages and personality, he is coming along really well.”

Martial will be hoping to impress yet again when Manchester United face Derby County in the FA Cup fourth round at Pride Park on Friday.
