Anthony Martial can emulate 'Henry' - Saha


Anthony Martial can emulate Henry - Saha

Saha backs Martial to succeed at United

Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha feels that young forward Anthony Martial has all the ingredients to match the great Thierry Henry in years to come.

The 19-year-old joined the Red Devils from AS Monaco for £36m on transfer deadline day.

Saha, who spent four years at United, reckons the youngster can have a big impact in the Premier League just as Henry did with Arsenal.

"In France we call him the next Thierry Henry because he can play left or right, he's got a great ability with the ball, he can take on three, four players with ease, there is no problem. At the same time, the new generation have no fear." he told Goal.com

"He's got such an ability that he can win trophies for Manchester United I believe that, but I don't want to put too much pressure on him."

Martial looks set to make his Premier League debut against Liverpool this weekend.
