Agent of Manchester United star mocks Arsenal

Martial 2We had to break up a fight at the Transfer Tavern this afternoon, after claims from Manchester United star Anthony Martial’s agent left Arsenal fans furious.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger declared earlier this week that his North London side tracked 19-year-old Martial for a while but elected not to move because they had plenty of strength on the wings.

That’s all well and good but Martial is now thriving as a central-striker at Manchester United, with four goals in his first four games, leaving Wenger with egg on his chin.

Ahead of the mammoth meeting between Arsenal and United next weekend, Martial’s agent Philippe Lamboley hit out at Wenger when speaking to RMC Sport- declaring his client as a true centre-forward.

“Anthony is a true modern centre-forward who can change a side.”

“I am surprised by the analysis of Wenger, who has apparently been following him since he was a teenager. If Wenger made his analysis to justify not signing Anthony, then I accept his words and so he is a winger.”

“But in football, there are those who follow footballers and those who buy them.”

With Arsenal the only side in Europe’s top leagues not to sign a senior outfield player over the summer, Lamboley’s comments have struck a nerve amongst Arsenal punters at the bar.

Can Anthony Martial really be as good as Thierry Henry? Let us know below!
