Sheringham: Man Utd cannot win title with Martial as No9

Manchester United Treble winner Teddy Sheringham is no fan of Anthony Martial.

Sheringham has claimed that his old club will not win the Premier League title with Martial as their main striker.

Manchester United won't win the title with Anthony Martial as their number nine," he told the Mirror.

“When you're playing at a club like that, scoring 20 goals in a season is good, but you're looking at a 30-35-goal man to be the icing on the cake. Will he be that man? I'm not so sure.

“They are not quite title contenders yet. You need top players all over the pitch. That's what Liverpool have got, that's what Man City have got. Chelsea are trying to get there. Man United have optimism but they still need to improve.

“They need a top centre-half, decent full backs and good midfield players all over the pitch."
