Martial is a world-class player: Former Manchester United player Robin van Persie

Van Persie believes the Frenchman's selflessness is what sets him apart.

Speaking on BT Sport after Manchester United's 1-0 Europa League win over FC Copenhagen on Monday, Robin van Persie said: "The outstanding player, for me, tonight, was Anthony Martial.

"When he switches it on, he's too fast, too silky and wow, what a player. What I like about Martial as well, is that he has eyes for his team-mates. He's not only playing for himself. He knows when to attack and go for it himself.

"That's why I think he's a world-class player because he has it all. He can provide, he can give assists, he can dribble, he's fast, but he always has a very good awareness of what’s happening around him."

Martial established himself as a key player at Old Trafford this season, scoring 23 goals in 47 games in all competitions for the Red Devils.
