Eric Cantona: Why Anthony Martial reminds me of Brazil legend Ronaldo


Manchester United legend Eric Cantona says Anthony Martial has the potential to become as strong as Brazil's Ronaldo.

The Red Devils paid £36million to sign the 20-year-old on the last day of last summer's transfer window.

He impressed during his first season at Old Trafford and Cantona believes there's more to come from the youngster.

"He's very mature for his age," Cantona told MUTV.

"I think he's the same kind of player as Ronaldo. Of course Ronaldo is a Brazilian, but he's as strong as him. Martial is skilful, he wants to score goals and he has good vision.

"At Manchester it's a great club for young players when you are in the Academy and also when you are 18/19/20 years old.

"[At that age] you need to go and play for a great team and also you need to work with people who will help you because you're still a young player, just as Ronaldo, the Portuguese Ronaldo, did when he came to play for United and for Ferguson.

"He had the opportunity to win trophies but also Ferguson helped him to be the player he is today. And I think he [Martial] has been very clever to choose Manchester United."
