Anthony Martial was one of Manchester United’s best players last season despite receiving relatively limited minutes and the French international is apparently not completely over being forced to hand his #9 jersey to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The 20-year-old will wear the #11 jersey for the 2016/17 season but still have love for #9.  He updated his facebook profile and cover photos with a shout-out to his #9.

 

Anthony Martial #9 controversy

 

It should not come as a shock that Martial was partial to the #9.  Martial is taking a page out of Cristiano Ronaldo’s book and his CR7 by branding himself ‘AM9’.  The move is no big jump as he has 9 as part of his social media accounts – on facebook it is ‘AnthonyMartialAM9’ and ‘Martial_9’ on Instagram.

The new #9 is not skipping a beat proudly proclaiming his new number on his Instagram account.  Maybe the former Swedish international should have commented ‘I stole’ the #9.
