Paul Scholes thinks Anthony Martial can become Manchester United's version of Thierry Henry.

Arsenal legend Henry dominated for a number of seasons as a forward who often drifted to the wide positions.

And Red Devils legend Scholes sees a lot of Henry in young forward Martial.

The United legend told Optus Sports: "If they sit in and defend like [Harry] Maguire can do, [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka great defender and just keep those two, Martial and Rashford towards the left-hand side most of the time and get the ball to those two I think they can hurt anybody.

"I don't think it's a bad thing that Martial keeps coming out to the left-hand side.

"Remember Thierry Henry, he started games at centre-forward, always ended up on the left side somehow. So I don't think it's a bad thing, if he [Martial] can be anything like Henry we'd take that now!"
