France manager Didier Deschamp has hailed Manchester United teenager Anthony Martial for his ability to perform under the pressure of expectation he is burdened with following the 36m GBP move to the English giants.

Martial made a flying start to his Manchester United career, showing no signs of buckling under the load of expectation on him after becoming the most expensive teenager in the history of world football. He scored four in his first four games, however, has not scored in the last three games since.

As international break begins on Monday, French manager Didier Deschamp was asked about Martial in the press conference ahead of international friendlies against Armenia on Thursday and Denmark on Sunday.


Deschamp was full of praise for the teenager, hailing his ability to handle pressure and his demeanor, which is very quite and shy.
