Anthony Martial will have a 'big season' at Manchester United in the 2016/17 campaign, according to his former coach.  

As reported by The Sun, Armand Garrido, who coached the exciting teenager during his youth days with Lyon, claims the striker will succeed if given time to prove his credentials. 

The forward hit the headlines last month as he completed an astonishing £36 million move to Manchester, but he hasn't looked back since. Martial has made a wonderful start to his Old Trafford career, scoring four goals in his opening seven games for the club.

Garrido certainly expects the dynamic ace to go from strength-to-strength at the Theatre of Dreams over the coming years.

Martial's former coach stated: “Anthony will succeed if he is allowed time to do so.

Martial prediction 

“A lot of things will happen to him. He will have to deal with them, understand the club, learn English, earn his place in the side. This does not happen overnight.

“I would expect him to do something big next season. Even when he misses a chance, he might smile. That helps.”

Superstar potential 

Martial really has made a remarkable start to his career on English soil. Unsurprisingly, he was named the PFA Player of the Month for Septemeber, but there's plenty more to come from the Red Devils' special talent.

At just 19, the ex-Monaco man appears to be the real deal. A natural finisher, it's not entirely surprising that he's been likened to Arsenal hero Thierry Henry. Of course, he still has so much to learn, but there appears to be something special about him. 

There will no doubt be struggles along the way, but Martial has the attributes to thrive at Old Trafford for the foreseeable future. There's more than one reason to be excited about United's latest recruit.
