Manchester United record teenage signing Anthony Martial has revealed his readiness to face Liverpool later today at Anfield.
The 20-year-old endeared himself to the hears of Red Devils faithful’s with a magnificent debut goal against the Reds and has not looked back ever since, producing some eye-catching displays under the guidance of Dutch manager Louis van Gaal.
“It’s a high-intensity game that is very important for the fans and it’s one of the most viewed games anywhere in the world,” Martial said in an exclusive interview with MUTV.
“From the minute I arrived, I was told that I’d got here at the moment that we were about to play against one of our big rivals. I was told that I would have to be ready and waiting, so I made sure that I was prepared mentally and focused for the game ahead.
“So the fact that I managed to come on made me feel really great and then it was even better to get on the scoresheet, as it allowed the supporters to get to know me and see what I could do as a player. It was a really great start to my career at this club.”
He added: “The fact that the manager has shown faith in me has also helped me and it’s thanks to him and my team-mates for what I’ve achieved so far.”
“The fans have shown a lot of confidence in me since I arrived and I received lots of welcome messages and kind wishes from them. It was really quite touching to get these and I hope I can repay them over the years that I’m here at United.”
