Berbatov: Martial can still fulfill potential at Man Utd

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov insists Anthony Martial can still fulfill his potential at Old Trafford.

Berbatov is not of the opinion that United need reinforcements further forward as he believes the strikers at the club, Martial in particular, are of the requisite quality to earn the club success.

"I'm not the coach. So it's not my job to say that. But I think the strikers are good enough. I like them, especially Anthony Martial, because I used to play with him in Monaco. I know how good he is," Berbatov told Xinhuanet.

"And I think he can be even better with the right training sessions, with the right attitude, and with the right guidance from the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"Because he was a striker, one of the best in the world, so you can go easily to the manager and ask for advice like how to score, how to move, how to round. So to be honest, I don't think they need someone new in the front line."
