Carrick hails Martial impact at Manchester United

Michael Carrick has hailed the impact of Anthony Martial in his first season at Manchester United.

Martial has already scored nine goals in 30 appearances since completing a high-profile transfer from Monaco last summer.

“The amount of ability he’s got is huge,” Carrick told

“The potential is certainly there. It’s easy to forget the age he is and how little football he’s actually played as well.

“To have such an impact at this stage, with the expectations based on him and the way he’s dealt with it, has been superb.”

“His performances have been very good,” Michael continued.

“I think we have to understand that sometimes he might not be that shining light and have days when it’s not quite happening for him, and that’s understandable.”

“But over time he’ll improve and I’ve seen a big improvement already in this short time. Hopefully that trend will continue and he’ll get better and better.”
