Manchester United is in need of No. 9, says Michael Owen

Michael Owen says with the Red Devils still in need of a “main No.9″ Anthony Martial is taking advantage of “now being the right time to play as a center-forward for Manchester United.”

The former Red Devils striker told Premier League Productions: “We are judging a team that has long under the-par. Now they have got a lot of strong players all of a sudden.”

“And now I believe he’s going to receive more support from Martial, so this is the best moment for Manchester United to be playing as a center-forward – with the likes of Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes and all other stars in and around you.”

“Is he one that will be No.9 in the coming years? He is looking very inconsistent at the minute. He’s going to score a hat-trick but will he score a lot of goals constantly? A doubt mark persists.”

“There is also a doubt as to what his strongest approach is. I guess it’s potentially off the left so that’s possibly the safest spot for Marcus Rashford again.”

“At the moment they’re shuffling the pack a bit, but if you’re asking most people, they’re going to say: ‘Where do Manchester United need to strengthen? They need the main No.9 ’.”
