Man Utd boss Ten Hag: Martial my type of player

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag admits Anthony Martial is “my type of player”.

Martial, now fully fit, could start against Fulham later today.

Ten Hag said: “Definitely, he plays very well in a lot of aspects of football. I’m happy with that, except his availability [after injury],” began the boss.

”But I think we also have others – when we played with Marcus Rashford as a no.9, we also had a good part of the game.

”So we have more options [in attack], and we also have Cristiano Ronaldo.”

He also said: “But, [be] quite clear, in my way of playing I like the type [of player] Antony Martial is, because he can hold the ball.

”He is a [also] a target, he can link up, but he can also run behind.

”He has speed, he can finish, and he has good pressure [presses well].”
