Martial Eager To Face Saint-Etienne

share on:

Anthony Martial is relishing the chance to once again face Saint-Etienne, a side he has encountered in the Europa League before.

The frenchman scored against the Ligue 1 club when he was at Monaco and was in Lyon, who are rivals of Saint-Etienne .

Manchester United host the first leg of the last-32 against Saint-Etienne and Martial is looking forward to haunting them again.

“There was a huge rivalry while I was still at Lyon,” Martial said to United’s official website.

“It was always a highly charged atmosphere and they were usually massive games, the kind all players love to play in.

“So there will be that added competitive edge whenever I play against them.

“We know it will be a difficult match but if we play with all our quality, I think we can do good things.

“Of course, it would be great if I could score against them again, but I hope we can win the game because that is the most important thing. Then it would be a bonus if I managed to grab a goal.”

He continued: “They have a tremendous following and I’m sure it will be lively, even more so as they are not used to playing against big clubs like United.

“There is always a great atmosphere there even against the smaller teams, so I can’t imagine what it will be like against us. It will be up to us to put it out of our minds.”
