Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says “there’s more to come” from Anthony Martial after the finest season of the Frenchman’s career.
Martial, 24, scored his 23rd goal of the season against LASK in Wednesday’s Europa League last-16 victory.
He has never scored more than 17 in a single campaign and this term’s tally is more than the last two seasons combined.
“Physically, he is at the best level of his career,” said Solskjaer.
After replacing Jose Mourinho as manager in December 2018, the Norwegian made it a priority to work on Martial’s finishing.
The rewards have been clear, with Martial now one ahead of Marcus Rashford in the United scoring charts heading into the quarter-final with FC Copenhagen in Cologne.
“Anthony has made huge strides this season in many aspects of his game,” said Solskjaer.
“We know he can do worldies but I like him scoring the simple goals, when he is in between the posts. He’s done that a few times.
“He’s in the gym a lot working on his fitness and strength. I’m just looking forward to seeing him improve. There’s more to come from him.”
