Carrick: Martial makes game look effortless

Manchester United veteran Michael Carrick is full of praise for teammate Anthony Martial.

Aside from his goals and assists, one of Martial’s biggest assets is his unerring ability to dribble past his marker at pace, and Carrick admits it must be a nightmare for opposition defenders to mark him.

“He makes it look so effortless,” Carrick told

“It almost looks like he’s not really sprinting but he has that burst of two or three yards to get past players.”

“You certainly wouldn’t want to be defending against him one-on-one in the box because once he knocks it by you and gets that yard, he’s away!

“He’s been so effective for us in the last couple of games.”
