Andy Cole believes Anthony Martial is super talented and he is playing ‘nowhere near his full potential.’

Anthony Martial won his place back in Manchester United’s starting XI in recent weeks as he overcame early-season fitness and discipline issues.

For now, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes are the only main sources of the United’s goals.

Edinson Cavani has been also trying to take Martial’s spot through the middle, but Andy Cole believes Martial is playing ‘nowhere near his full potential’ as he scored 23 goals across all competitions last term.

"He's [Martial's] super talented, he gets in great positions but sometimes his finishing is a bit erratic," Cole said. "He hits the goalkeeper, he doesn't make the right decisions at times but he has all the talent in the world. I do genuinely believe, like Marcus [Rashford], he's nowhere near his full potential.

"He just has to keep persevering and hopefully he'll go on a good run. He's another one that could get 25 goals, easily.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also believes that Martial could get better as he said: "Anthony is going to improve. He’s going to be better and better.

“He’s still creating chances, he’s just not had that little bit of luck, margins in front of goal. They’ll come. We saw a better version of Anthony, a more confident one.”
