Expert Eye – Martial will make it ‘impossible’ to shut down Man United

first_imgLouis Saha claims Anthony Martial’s arrival at Manchester United will make it “impossible” for opposition teams to shut down the Red Devils.The French youngster became the world’s most expensive teenager last week when he moved to the Premier League in a £36million deal from Monaco.And while Saha, who spent four years at Old Trafford, admits that price tag may be a “bit too much”, he has no doubts the 19-year-old has the ability to succeed at the Theatre of Dreams.“I’m  a big fan of his,” he told talkSPORT. “I think he’s got the quality [Louis] Van Gaal requires and I’m not surprised they went for him. It’s a good choice.“He will bring speed and unpredictability [to the team] and they are the things missing at the moment – someone who is capable of doing things you’re not expecting, beating three or four players on his own and creating his own chances. He can really ease the pressure on the player up front because he can hold the ball up. He’s strong and he can do that.“United need someone who can surprise teams. Sometimes coaches can read the gameplan of Van Gaal a bit too easily, but with this player that’s not possible.”last_img read more
