Louis Saha: Why Anthony Martial reminds me of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry


Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha says Anthony Martial has "as much quality" as a young Thierry Henry.

The 20-year-old was a late summer signing by the club after he moved from Monaco for an estimated fee of £36m.

He scored 7 goals for the Red Devils in 24 appearances so far this season.

"He has definitely got the quality and the platform for working really hard at Manchester United," Saha told MUTV.

"When you get that, you get the experience under your belt of being at a big club and you get respected easier with France. When you see him, he has as much quality as Thierry Henry at this age.

"Thierry [Henry] was a really decisive player and that is where Martial needs to work; he needs to be more precise and give more indication to his game.

"Everything seems to be easy for him: being on the ball, being strong, holding the ball at the right moments, getting important goals and being able to play week in and week out. He hasn't played this many games during his career so he has done really well to adapt his physique.

"What I really like about him is that he is willing to improve. He is listening and trying to get things going. He hasn't been helped because the team hasn't been performing consistently, so imagine if a few players stepped it up? Then it would have been even easier for him."
