Monaco head coach Leonardo Jardim is unsurprised by Anthony Martial's flying start to life at Manchester United. The 19-year-old became the most expensive teenager in history after agreeing to a £36m move to Old Trafford and has made a strong start to life in England, netting four goals in his opening six appearances.

"We worked with Anthony Martial on his physical and mental attributes," the former Sporting Lisbon boss said. "I'm not surprised by his performances." The principality club, owned by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, has seen several high profile transfers since the takeover in 2011 but Jardim says the club maintain their focus on producing high quality young players. "We work hard to make sure our young players reach the top European level."
