Manchester United Fans Can't Believe Unai Emery Complimented Anthony Martial

Anthony Martial may not be having the best time at Manchester United right now, but at least he can take solace in the fact that Villarreal boss Unai Emery rates him in the same category as Cristiano Ronaldo.

It's not been a great start to the season for Martial, who has been pushed to the periphery of the United squad with the introductions of Jadon Sancho and Ronaldo this summer.

The France forward has only started two games in all competitions and they saw United draw in the Premier League with Southampton and lose in the Carabao Cup to West Ham.

Martial is reportedly up for sale in January and even the club's owner is ready to let him go, having previously been a huge fan of the former Monaco player.

However, if the 25-year-old is feeling down, at least he knows Emery rates him, with the Villarreal boss name checking the Frenchman alongside Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani as strikers who could 'play in any team.'

However, it wasn't just Martial's name being added to the list that had people talking, with Emery's use of 'individually' also under scrutiny.

A big criticism of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is that he's not been able to get the best out of his team as a unit, and instead relies on individuals and moments to win games.

The former Arsenal boss bringing up the fact the players are good 'individually' has been seen as a dig at the man who will be stood in the opposing technical area at Old Trafford.

The two met back in May in the Europa League final, where Emery got the better of Solskjaer as the Spanish side stopped the Norwegian winning his first piece of silverware as United boss.
