"Anthony Martial Can Reach Ronaldo’s Level" - Man Utd Coach Solskjaer

Manchester United Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes forward Anthony Martial has the talent to be like Cristiano Ronaldo.

Martial stole the show during United's 3-0 defeat of Fulham with a fantastic solo goal.

Martial's goal, which saw him run from the halfway line, led to comparison to a Cristiano Ronaldo winner at Craven Cottage in 2007.

“Yes, it was towards the end of the game and we played a very poor game and Cristiano scored it,” Solskjaer said when asked about the similarities with Ronaldo's famous strike.

“He does have similarities, of course.

“If he wants to be at Cristiano’s level, Anthony knows what he has to do. It’s up to him. He has the talent.

“I am glad he is in my team. He has contributed to so many chances, so many goals.

"He is a Manchester United player. He excites the crowd. He excites the manager. He excites his team-mates. And he is a great character around the place.”

United are back in action on Tuesday, when they will face Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of a Champions League last-16.

“When you play against the best teams, you want to play against the players,” Solskjaer added.

“The crowd want to see the best players. Too bad for Old Trafford.

“I have played a couple of games when we played Real Madrid and Ronaldo and (Luis) Figo and all those were comingto Old Trafford. That gives it an extra edge.

“Unfortunately for Neymar he is injured, but of course he is a quality player. I think our right-back thinks it is not too bad he will not be here.”
