It’s fair to say Anthony Martial has had a largely inconsistent career at Old Trafford since his move from AS Monaco. After bursting onto the scene in the Premier League with a goal against Liverpool on his debut, the talented Frenchman has blown hot and cold since.
The 23-year-old has struggled to nail down a position in United’s starting eleven, but according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the winger still has the potential to develop into one of the best.
As quoted by the club’s official website, the United boss insisted that Martial could become a “world-class forward”, and said that he expects to see a much better version of the Frenchman during the upcoming campaign.
After hearing Solskjaer’s comments, United fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the matter and many were seemingly perplexed by what the Norwegian had to say.
Some appeared to mock Solskjaer for claiming Martial could become one of the world’s elite and urged him not to get “carried away”.
Indeed, a few Red Devils supporters felt that all this “over-hyping” of Martial would simply end in disappointment, and that the France international’s attitude would stop him from fulfilling his potential.

Don’t get carried away boss. We’ve seen this so many times before.

After all this overhyping at the end of the season he won’t get anywhere near world class because he lacks the attitude to be one. Is one thing to have the talent and is another thing to have the right mindset to be a top player…
