Martial is 'far better' than I was at 21, claims Henry

STAR: Anthony Martial

THIERRY HENRY has predicted Anthony Martial could become a world class player, claiming the Manchester United forward is already better than he was aged 21.

Martial has already racked up five goals and six assists in his first nine appearances of the season for Jose Mourinho's side. The France forward drew comparisons to Henry, following his own big-money move to England from Monaco in 2015.

Henry, who scored 175 goals during his eight-year stay at Arsenal, believes Martial has shown enough to suggest he can reach the very top of the game.

‘Anthony Martial is a far better player than I was at that age,’ said Henry. ‘He can become a world-class player.’

Martial shone as United beat CSKA Moscow 4-1 to continue their perfect record in this season's Champions League.
