Manchester United’s deadline day signing Anthony Martial has been named the PFA Fans’ Player of the month for August/September in the Premier League. .
The former Monaco striker who was signed for a World record transfer fee for a teenager has had a dream start to life at Old Trafford, scoring in his league debut against arch-rivals Liverpool FC.
The 19-year-old has scored four goals in seven appearances for the Red Devils and helped his club reach the summit of the Premier League at the end of September.
Martial had scored only 15 goals in 68 appearances at the Stade Louis II, but has put to bed any doubts about his goal-scoring abilities with three goals in his first two appearances in the league. The Frenchman’s style resembles Arsenal FC legend Thierry Henry’s and many comparisons have been drawn between the two.
The Old Trafford club had received some flak for the astronomical transfer fees spent for the capture of a relatively unknown striker, but going by the first month of his life at Old Trafford, we have a star in the making.
