Martial can do things team-mates can’t – Herrera

Anthony Martial’s pace and mobility gives Manchester United’s attack a different dimension, according to Ander Herrera.

Martial joined United in a £36million deal from Monaco on transfer deadline day, with add-ons possibly taking the fee up to £58million.

The 19-year-old scored on his debut against Liverpool and followed it up with an encouraging display on his first start against PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday.

After signing the Frenchman from Monaco on deadline day, Louis van Gaal insisted he would ease him into the team gently.

But Herrera believes Martial has already proved he’s a valuable part of the first-team squad.

He told United’s website: “I think he is a player who has some qualities that the rest haven’t got. So I think he can run into the spaces when the midfielders look forward.

“We are always going to find him because he’s very quick, very mobile, so I think he is a very good player for us and is going to give us different options.”
