Juan Mata: Martial has incredible potential

Manchester United goalscorer Juan Mata hailed the performance of Anthony Martial for victory at FA Cup opponents Derby County.

It was Martial’s superb assist that led to Mata scoring the final goal of the night in Derbyshire and the Spaniard was clearly enthused by his team-mate when speaking to MUTV after the final whistle, stating his belief that his colleague has “incredible potential” to fulfil in the coming seasons.

“I’ve been really impressed with him,” Mata said.

“He’s a very good player. He has a lot of good things and can beat almost anyone one-on-one.”

“He can do great crosses like we saw when he passed back to me for the goal and I really enjoy playing alongside him, because he’s a very good player.”

“He has incredible potential. I think he has to keep calm, which I think he is.”

“He has to show what he has shown in almost every game, and for me he is an unbelievable player.”
