Anthony Joran Martial is a French professional footballer who plays as a forward for the prestigious English Club Manchester United. He is of Guadalupian descent as his parents migrated from the island of Guadeloupe in the South Caribbean Sea to mainland France. Martial’s transfer to Manchester United in 2013 bore the record for the highest fee paid for a teenager ever. He is a devout Catholic who is seen saying a word of prayer every time he steps onto the field. His style of play is described by many of his peers to be very similar to that of legendary French and Arsenal forward Thierry Henry. His speed and technical abilities help him excel both in wide as well as up-front positions on the field. He is known for his knack for breaking through stringent offside traps and defenses with ease. Many of his teammates at United claim that he is the fittest player in the club owing to his grueling fitness routine.
