Neville: Martial has star potential

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville believes Anthony Martial has the potential to become a top player at Old Trafford.

The 21-year-old has found it difficult to replicate the form of his debut season when he scored 11 league goals and has also been linked with a move away from United.

However, the Frenchman was in excellent form against Watford on Saturday and contributed with a goal and an assist, as the Red Devils won 2-0.

"He did really well. It's a good start for him in terms of the rest of the season," Neville told Sky Sports.

"United have got a lot of games, he is going to get football and the fans love him.

"The manager has given him a chance. Go for it. It can be the best club in the world for you to play at and make you into a star. I think he has just got to recognise that."

He added: "Martial is a huge signing in terms of money (£36 million) and is still very young. However, he is a massive, massive potential talent. He could be anything he wants to be."
