Manchester United’s new signing Anthony Martial has rejected his comparison with Arsenal’s record goalscorer Thierry Henry, saying that he is still very far away from the latter’s level.

According to Sport24, the comparison was made between the duo because of their similar style of playing such as running behind defenders and ability to calmly score from one-on-ones.

Reacting to the comparison, the 19-year-old said that he doesn’t find anything similar between him and Henry, insisting that he is a very great player in England.

He added that he has to work really hard to reach the level of the legendry player.

Martial was signed by United in the summer for 36 million pounds, thus making him the most expensive football teenager.

Martial had already scored four goals this season, with three coming in the Premier League and one in the Capital One Cup.
