Wayne Rooney has hailed teammate Anthony Martial as incredible following his immediate impact at Old Trafford since he joined at the summer.
The 19-year-old became the most expensive teenager in the history of football when Manchester United paid a heavy sum of £36m to sign him from AS Monaco on transfer deadline day.
Rooney, who also moved to Old Trafford as a teenager, has said that the French international “deserves a lot of credit” for his seamless transition to English football.
“I think he has been incredible, how he has come over to Manchester and started the way he has,” Rooney told United Review. “Let’s not forget he is still a very young lad as well. To come over with his young family and start the way he has, he deserves a lot of credit.
“You can see what a good player he is and he’ll be an important player for us from now until the end of the season. He is probably the quickest player in our team, if not the quickest in the league.”
Martial is expected to lead the line upfront when Manchester United plays Middlesborough in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.
