Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has backed new signing Anthony Martial to shine at Old Trafford, and insists the young Frenchman can provide something his new team-mates can't.
The former Monaco man is now the most expensive teenager in football after his £36 million switch to the Red Devils, which could rise to as much as £58 million.
The 19-year-old got off to the perfect start when he scored on his Manchester United debut in the 3-1 win against Liverpool last weekend, although he was powerless to stop his new team falling to a 2-1 defeat against PSV Eindhoven on their return to the Champions League.

Martial is expected to fall behind Wayne Rooney in the pecking order when the England international returns from injury but Herrera, a 2014 summer signing from Athletic Bilbao, believes that his new colleague can do things that even Rooney can't.
He told Manchester United's website: "I think he is a player who has some qualities that the rest haven’t got. So I think he can run into the spaces when the midfielders look forward.
"We are always going to find him because he’s very quick, very mobile, so I think he is a very good player for us and is going to give us different options."
Manchester United have had a solid start to the season, although a defeat against Swansea before the international break dampened expectations somewhat.
Next up for Louis van Gaal's side is a trip to Southampton, before Ipswich Town visit in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.
Do you think Martial can displace Rooney as Manchester United's number one striker?
