Bryan Robson claims Anthony Martial can become Premier League great

How far can Martial go?

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has claimed that forward Anthony Martial could become a Premier League great in the future.

The Frenchman hasn’t had the greatest of times at Old Trafford during his United career.

His performances have been slightly limited over the past two seasons and he hasn’t been overly impressive in that time.

Though, he’s starting to hit form now.

Martial has scored four goals in four games including a brace against Chelsea.

Now, the sky is the limit for the Frenchman according to Manchester United legend Bryan Robson.

“One of the greats in the Premier League”

The former Old Trafford star has claimed that if he can strengthen his mentality and continue doing what he has been, he can become a Premier League great.

“For me, over the last month we’ve seen the real Martial, where you expect him to be, because he’s got so much talent,” Robson explained to

“He’s had a terrific month and hopefully, he can continue that all the way through the season now.

“Mentally, Martial just needs to get that little bit stronger to make sure he can do it week in, week out and not just have a good period for one month, then dip in form for a couple of months and then come back to form.

“If he can get stronger with his mentality and put performances in like he has been doing week in, week out then everyone will really appreciate him, and he is going to be one of the greats in the Premier League.

“We need it on a consistent basis and then that would be terrific for himself and for Man United.”
