Manchester United completed the deadline day singing Anthony Martial from Monaco for £36m.
Red Devils star striker Wayne Rooney admitted that he had no idea who Martial is, but the young striker stayed humble in his response to Rooney’s comments.
“It’s normal that Rooney doesn’t know who I am. This is my first time with France and I’ve played a little in Ligue 1,” Martial said, according to The Metro.
Martial has also refused to admit that he believes he is worth what Man United paid for him.
Although Martial is not buying into his own hype, he showed that he has a promising future at Old Trafford.
The French international scored nine goals in 35 Ligue 1 appearances for Monaco this season.
It remains to be seen whether Martial can excel in the Premier League, but he will have a prime opportunity to learn from Rooney.
If the 19-year-old striker can take advantage of his opportunity to learn the ropes, he may become a long-term success for the Red Devils.
Man United have already received a relatively promising start from winger Memphis Depay, and the addition of Martial could be a massive boost to the side’s title hopes.
