Keane: Ighalo has sparked reaction from Martial

MARTIAL: Manchester Uniteds Anthony Martial.

Manchester United legend Roy Keane is happy to see how Odion Ighalo has influenced Anthony Martial.

The nigerian has sparked life in Martial since he came to Old Trafford in january, believes Keane.

Martial scoret the first goal when Manchester United beat Manchester City 2-0 on Sunday.

“You’ve had a reaction as well from Martial,” he told Sky Sports. “Sometimes a new striker comes in, you praise the new striker, but then that pushes the other lads.

“There’s almost been a reaction from Martial, thinking: ‘Oh, I’ve got another player to fight with for my position’. And there’s been a good reaction.”

Late signing
