Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and pundits hailed Anthony Martial after his victory for Manchester United.
Anthony Martial looked like a “£100million player” and was called a “Ferrari” by Owen Hargreaves, after Manchester United’s Europa League win over Copenhagen.
France forward Martial won the penalty, to send United to the semi-finals, from which Bruno Fernandes scored for a 1-0 extra-time victory in Cologne on Monday.
With Martial impressing while leading the line, the Red Devils had 14 shots on goal and hit the woodwork twice, in the quarter-final game.
“He was sharp” – his success drew praise from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Equally effusive of his praise was former United midfielder Hargreaves when reporting on Martial’s fine performance for his role as a BT Sport pundit.
“Everyone’s got an opinion on Martial. He’s a Ferrari,” he said.
“He just looked like a £100million player.”
