Dorian Martial: 'Anthony Martial is a future captain of Manchester United'

Anthony Martial is tipped to be a future Manchester United and French national team captain, by his big brother Dorian.

Anthony Martial has been tipped as a future captain of Manchester United and the French national team, by his big brother Dorian.

The 19-year-old striker arrived from Monaco for a reported £58m fee and is being compared to the likes of Thierry Henry before even making his debut for the Red Devils.

However, despite being relatively unproven, Anthony's brother Dorian believes that the United forward will be a captain at the club and at international level someday.

"Anthony has all the qualities needed to be Manchester United and France captain. He has always been a natural leader in a team — he's been like that since he was six," Dorian told The Sun.

"My little brother isn't someone who will shout at all the players around him. He doesn't need to because he speaks with his incredible skills. Anthony is a talisman and has the ego and personality on the pitch to be a captain of Manchester United and even France. Of course, not right now — because he is just 19 — but definitely in the future.

"He comes from a club that has produced two France captains. Patrice Evra went on to be United skipper while Thierry Henry had the armband at Arsenal. It's in the DNA here because players are well educated. They're taught to be responsible but also respectful. The fee is a lot of money but Anthony will not worry. He doesn't know the meaning of the word 'pressure.'"

Martial joined Louis van Gaal's side from Monaco on transfer deadline day in August.
