Anthony Martial has the right moment to take advantage of the fact that he is playing as a centre-forward for Manchester United, says Michael Owen.
With the Red Devils still in need of a ‘main No. 9’, Owen advises Martial to step up his game. He told:
“Is he one that will be No. 9 in coming years? He is looking very inconsistent at the minute. He’s going to score a hat-trick but will he score a lot of goals constantly? A doubt mark persists.
“There is also a doubt as to what his strongest approach is. I guess it’s potentially off the left so that’s possibly the safest spot for Marcus Rashford again.
“At the moment they’re shuffling the pack a bit, but if you’re asking most people, they’re going to say: ‘Where do Manchester United need to strengthen? They need the main No. 9.’”
The former Red Devils striker said: “We are judging a team that has long under the-par. Now they have got a lot of strong players all of a sudden.
“And now I believe he’s going to receive more support from Martial, so this is the best moment for Manchester United to be playing as a centre-forward – with the likes of Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes and all other stars in and around you.”
