Martial Reveals His Two Biggest Childhood Idols

Manchester United star Anthony Martial has revealed the names of his two biggest idols growing up, and also had a mention for five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.

Carlos Names 3 Players With Best Freestyle Skills, No Messi or CR7!

The young Frenchman has been in great form for the Red Devils so far this season, and is said to be nearing a new deal with the club.

Asked who he grew up watching as a child recently, Martial named arguably two of the most skilful and highly revered Brazilians to have ever played the game.  

"My two big heroes were both Brazilian: Ronaldinho and Ronaldo, because they had magic in their feet!" he told United's official website.

"Just about every player from my age group back then would probably tell you the same thing."

Martial was also asked who his favourite United player of all time was.

"It was Cristiano Ronaldo. He was incredible. He is incredible," he added.  

"I only admired players who dribbled the ball and he did just that. He would put on a real show.

"To tell you the truth, he got me dreaming that one day it could be me."

Ronaldo Breaks Juventus Record

The 22-year-old has scored six goals in 10 league matches for United so far this season.

Do you think Martial can reach the heights of any of his idols? Let us know in the comments section below.
