Anthony Martial: Would like to play alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Michael Owen says Anthony Martial has “done what he had to” but not ‘taken his breath away’ with his performances for Manchester United so far.

United paid an initial £36million to sign Martial from Monaco on transfer deadline day, but the 19-year-old has responded to raised eyebrows about his transfer fee with four goals already for the Red Devils.

Owen, however, is not getting carried away about the Frenchman’s performances.

“He has done what he had to do, that was the question mark before he came because he didn’t have a goalscoring record,” Owen said.

“I am not watching him and he is doing things I haven’t seen before, he’s not taking my breath away but you can’t pick any holes in his game right now, he has scored four in four.”
