Anthony Martial can be “one of the best players in the world”, according to Manchester United team-mate Ander Herrera.
Martial had a frustrating second season under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford – scoring nine goals in 18 starts – leading to him being left out of France’s World Cup-winning squad and linked with a move away.
Reports understand that Martial is part of United’s plans for the forthcoming season, despite his agent telling French media in July that he wants to leave.
Herrera has been impressed by Martial’s start to pre-season and has backed him to rediscover his form this term.
“He’s very talented,” the Spanish midfielder said. “He can be one of the best players in the world and I think he is very focused this season to smash it.
“When you have players like Anthony, like Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Alexis Sanchez, those kind of players that can change the game.”
