Manchester United forward Anthony Martial wants to win some silverware with “probably the biggest club in the world” this season.
Martial – named in our XI of the best players in their maiden Premier League season – has been one of the rare bright sparks for United in a season that has already seen them exit the Champions League and sit six points outside the top four.
The £36m signing from Monaco told Inside United magazine: “Now I’m actually here, I can totally appreciate that it’s one of the biggest, and probably is the biggest club in the world. So I just want to perform really well here and make the supporters proud.
“When I’m on the pitch I try and not put pressure on myself and get on with playing my football. I hope that this year we are going to manage to win something.
“When my agent told me that Manchester United wanted to sign me it was a truly exceptional moment and I did not hesitate for one second.
“I did not have as much pressure on me at Monaco because there are not so many fans who follow the game there. But here the stadium is always full so it’s really fantastic.”
Martial also revealed that he moved to United after consulting legendary left-back Patrice Evra.
“He told me it was a ‘club of champions’, a club that above all else wants to win, and certainly since I arrived here I’ve felt that for myself too.
“He lives in the same town as me in France and has only ever had good things to say to me about the club.
“He talks about us all the time and he’s told me that he spent his very best years as a player here so I reckon he is still very attached to this club.”
