Martial wins Player of the Month: New signing hits the ground running

Manchester United striker Anthony Martial is keen on making assists and wants to improve that aspect of his playing.

Martial has been an outstanding star for United in their lacklustre campaign, scoring eight goals in 28 appearances.

The France international has also been exceptional in setting up his teammates, making two assists in the 3-1 win over Derby County.

“I have always been considered as an altruistic person – this is something that has been said to me quite a lot,” Martial told MUTV , “so both giving a decisive pass or scoring a goal means as much to me. In the end, the most important thing is to win as a team.

“I think it’s important to keep working hard to constantly improve and help the team to win titles and get back on top of the league table.

“Yes, I have a number in mind [as a goals target] but I’d rather keep it to myself.”

Martial set up Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata in Friday’s win over Derby and the Frenchman is keen to learn from England’s all-time top goalscorer.

“[I improve] by training every day with talented players,” he added, “especially with Rooney, I learn a lot from him.

“I always try to get inspired from him so that I can also become a great player.”
