Gary Neville's Analysis On Anthony Martial's Dribbling Technique Was Truly Excellent

Gary Neville's Analysis On Anthony Martial's Dribbling Technique Was Truly Excellent

There's a strong case to be made for Gary Neville being the best pundit around, and a good example of why could be seen after Bournemouth vs Man City on MNF this week.

The biggest challenger to that title for Neville is most likely his Sky Sports colleague Jamie Carragher, so when the two are together on MNF we tend to get serious value for our time when watching them break down the Premier League action. It was during a look at Man Utd vs Watford when Neville pulled up something he noticed having watched the match live in Old Trafford, and it was an outstanding piece of analysis.

While most pundits were justifiably praising Anthony Martial for returning to the Manchester United lineup with a bang, Neville actually picked out an area of his game that he feels he needs to improve in order to kick on and reach that next level.

Martial's dribbling technique was directly compared to Thierry Henry, but Neville outlined what the former Arsenal man did that made him so hard to predict, and it's something that is yet to develop in Martial's game.

It's constructive criticism, and it's absolutely spot on.

Martial is a seriously promising player, and Neville's claim that he can 'be anything he wants to be' is true, but he's not the finished article. That's exciting for Man Utd fans, but top marks to Neville for looking deeper for a talking point rather than just focus on what did right.

Really, it just makes us rue the fact that he's not on every week.
