Rio Ferdinand says Man Utd star looks like a 'different human' under Solskjaer

Rio Ferdinand has hailed Anthony Martial and says the Manchester United forward looks like a ‘different human’ under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Martial scored his 20th goal of the season as the Red Devils thumped Bournemouth 5-2 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

With Manchester United already 2-1 up, the 24-year-old picked up the ball on the left flank and dribbled towards goal before cutting to his right and rifling a superb strike into the top corner.

Ferdinand said Martial’s goal was ‘unbelievable’ and insisted the Frenchman looked transformed under Solskjaer.

‘This was just magic,’ Ferdinand told BT Sport. ‘It had me off my seat.

‘I was screaming in the studio. He cuts in, takes a look and says “top bin, here you come”. It’s an unbelievable strike.

‘He looks like a different human, a different person. He looks like he’s enjoying his football, he’s smiling again and feels confident.

‘There’s a passion inside of him now. This guy is a different character under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.’

Martial’s Manchester United team-mates Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes were also on target as the Red Devils thumped relegation-battlers Bournemouth.

Solskjaer’s side have now won four of their five games since lockdown as they look to finish the season on a high and secure Champions League qualification.
