Martial wins Player of the Month
Manchester United’s Anthony Martial has been named the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month for September.
The deadline day signing has had a fine start to his Manchester United career, after arriving on a £36million deal from AS Monaco.
Martial pipped Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez and West Ham’s Dimitri Payet, who have also enjoyed good starts to the season.
But 3 goals in 2 games, including winners against Liverpool and Southampton, gave the French teen sensation the edge.
Martial, who has been repeatedly compared to Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, has played down speculation that he’s similar to him.
“Thierry Henry? I know this is a very great player who is a legend in England. I have everything left to prove,” he said,
“By continuing to work, I will try to reach his level. But at the moment, I’m still far from it.”
