It has been reported that Claudio Ranieri believes Anthony Martial can forge a ‘fantastic career’ with Manchester United.
The Leicester City boss managed the 19-year-old French forward at AS Monaco and has been impressed by his start to life in England but suggests it is important not to get too carried away.
“I think it was important for him to score a goal,” said Ranieri of Martial who cost United £36million on deadline day.
“He was paid a lot of money and the people expect.
“But let him grow up slowly. He is a fantastic player but it is important he maintain his calm.
“Let him concentrate on his job and I believe he can have a very fantastic career.”
Martial netted a double on Sunday’s 3-2 win over Southampton to take his tally to three goals in two Premier League outings.
