Reports are out claiming that Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has spectacularly back flipped on his assertion that Anthony Martial would not be a success at Manchester United.
Following Martial’s £36million transfer from Monaco, Parlour said Martial was ‘not proven’ and was ‘going to be a miss’ at Old Trafford.
Parlour has been forced to swallow his pride and back track on his earlier opinion of the Martial signing.
“I’ve been getting hammered by United fans because I said it’s a lot of money to spend on a young kid but he’s proved everyone wrong,” Parlour said.
“People are likening him to Thierry Henry – he looks like a very good talent and could be a major force for United and could give them the opportunity to win the league.”
