United legend Gary Neville has backed Anthony Martial to succeed as a strike
for the Red Devils. The France international started his United career with the
job of leading the line but over the past three seasons, he has been occupying
the left side of the attack where he has come up with mixed performances.

Gunnar Solskjaer after handing him with the number nine shirt and Neville
believes the Frenchman now has the chance to prove that he can excel in the
centre-forward position, he said: “Martial has not realised his potential on
the left side for three or four years and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is probably
thinking he wants to play centre forward, he’s a good finisher, I have to give
him that chance. You could argue it’s to the detriment of Rashford, but if he

be a centre-forward then it’s worth giving him that chance. I think now is the
time for Martial to deliver it.”
