Manchester United striker Martial: English fans live and breathe football

Manchester United striker Anthony Martial admits he enjoys the intensity of the Premier League.

The French international says he has relished the challenge in the division, and has nothing but praise for its physicality and competitiveness.

Martial told Sky Sports: “It’s true that the atmosphere here is quite different from the one in France, people live and breathe football here, and that’s what I like, every footballer wants to play in the Premier League.

“In France it’s easy to know which team is going to win the game, where as in England anywhere you play, you know it’s going to be difficult.

“I think it made me realise how physically strong I am, I wasn’t aware of it while playing for Monaco, as I wasn’t playing consistently.”

“I think the manager believes in me and I make sure I look after myself as well as my diet in order to be fit for games.”
