Manchester United fans believe Anthony Martial can effectively replace Cristiano Ronaldo next season following his man of the match performance in the 4-0 thrashing of Liverpool.
It might only be pre-season, but Manchester United fans are already getting very excited for the campaign that lies ahead under Erik ten Hag.
With Cristiano Ronaldo keen on leaving Manchester United this summer, fans believe Ten Hag shouldn’t worry about the Portuguese international as Anthony Martial is a capable replacement.
Martial’s goal in the 4-0 victory over Liverpool capped a fine performance for the attacker in which he pressed the Liverpool defence and caused a constant nuisance with his movement.
Martial’s display had supporters on the edge of their seats throughout the first half, and fans believe he can replace Cristiano Ronaldo next season.

@LMCVen tweeted: “Martial with the shades of Berba.”
Manchester United were open to selling Martial this summer but with Cristiano Ronaldo keen on leaving the club, it seems likely the France international will be given the chance to prove his worth.
