Marcus Rashford raves about Manchester United teammate Anthony Martial – United In Focus – Manchester United FC News

Marcus Rashford has lavished praise on “unbelievable” Manchester United teammate Anthony Martial.

The pair came off the bench to inspire the Red Devils to a 3-2 victory against Omonia Nicosia in the Europa League.

The dynamic duo then combined to devastating effect with Martial putting Erik ten Hag’s side into the lead with his first couple of touches from just outside the penalty area.

Rashford then scored his second after tapping home a Cristiano Ronaldo shot.

Marcus Rashford raves about Anthony Martial

Speaking on BT Sport after tonight’s clash in Cyprus, United’s number ten said: “He’s a massive player for us, he has been for a long time.

“When he’s happy and at it, he’s an unbelievable player, and I’ve always enjoyed playing with him.

“We will be looking to link-up more and more. We’ve both been injured so it’s good for him to get minutes.

“It’s the second game in a row where he has scored and made a good impact.”

The pair returned from their respected injuries in Sunday’s chastening 6-3 defeat to Manchester City.

Rashford started that game but was replaced by the Frenchman who scored two consolation goals for the beleaguered Red Devils.

The pair combined to score a crucial goal in August in the win against Liverpool.

Both Martial and Rashford will no doubt be hoping to start Sunday’s Premier League clash against Everton at Goodison Park.

Rashford has already equalled his goal tally from last season (5) across all competitions and Martial has three goals from two matches.
