If there’s a time of year to get carried away with things, it’s the pre-season.
A Manchester United fan has been so impressed with Anthony Martial’s performance in pre-season that he believes the striker will be a shock contender for the Premier League Golden Boot.
The Red Devils are stepping up their preparations for the new season with huge question marks over Cristiano Ronaldo’s future following his revelation that he is looking to leave the club.
With Erik ten Hag in the hunt for a new striker, Martial has certainly seized the opportunity presented to him by scoring three goals in three appearances for the club in pre-season.
The French star looked like a strong candidate to leave Old Trafford permanently this summer after falling out of favor in recent years, but his recent form could suggest a new opportunity to make a name for himself with the club.
According to United fan Luke, Martial’s campaign could reach greater heights than just being involved for United.
Luke told talkSPORT: “I think he’s up there to get the Golden Boot this year, Anthony Martial.
“Call me crazy, but United bought him for a reason and he was rated way before Mbappe and that. I just think playing under a new manager at Ten Hag will bring out the best in him.
Listening to the Man United fan’s opinion, Jason Cundy couldn’t believe what he was hearing.
Cundy said, “I don’t know what to say, Luke.
“If he does you have to go and buy some lottery tickets because that’s the best guess because from everything we’ve seen Martial do so far in the Premier League there’s no evidence that it will. occur.”
Luke then claimed he expected Martial to score more goals than Raheem Sterling at Chelsea, prompting Cundy to reply: “Based on what?
“Let me tell you about Sterling, okay?” There are only three players since signing for Man City who have scored more Premier League goals: Kane, Salah and Vardy. These are the only three.
“If he does, then go buy a lottery ticket!”
