Club legend: This Manchester United player is on the same level of Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe


Manchester United legend Mikael Silvestre says striker Anthony Martial is on the same level of one of Europe's most wanted striker Kylian Mbappe.

The Frenchman believes the 21-year-old can - together with Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku - take over from Zlatan Ibrahimovic who was released at the end of last season.

"Zlatan's aura was big, so was his character, his ego, and what he was spreading around him was sometimes intimidating for the younger players," Silvestre said.

"But also it gives you an example to follow, so it was good to have him around.

"For the younger players and Anthony, you'd expect them to score more goals, and not put all the pressure on Romelu for the first season.

"Marcus [Rashford] has to score more, Anthony too, and all these players will benefit from the work of the team - but it wasn't consistent last season.

"Definitely, [Martial is on the same level as Mbappe]. Every time he touches the ball, even out here in training, you can sense the danger.

"You don't dive into a challenge when you're facing Anthony, because he can go left or right, and beat you with speed.

"When you reach that level, when you then have a difficult time, you bounce back, because you are a competitor.

"Anthony has reached the level of Manchester United and the French national team, so I think he will answer the critics."
