Video: First footage of Anthony Martial in Manchester United training

by Sam Peoples

Anthony Martial joined up with his Manchester United team-mates this week for the first time to take part in training ahead of the Liverpool game this weekend.

There has been so much spotlight on the 19-year-old before he has even kicked a ball in a Man United shirt because of how much we paid AS Monaco for him but at the club, he’ll have none of that pressure put on him.

Martial has had a fantastic international break having made his debut for France’s senior team with cameo appearances against Portugal and Serbia, so he’ll be full of confidence now that he’s in Manchester.

Louis van Gaal will be very careful to try and protect Martial as much as possible from the prying eyes of the press but it will be interesting to see if he plays Liverpool. What a way to introduce Martial to United that would be.
