Paul Pogba describes former Manchester United team-mate Wayne Rooney as a legend

Martial is United's joint-second highest goalscorer in the league this season so far with two goals while Rashford is yet to score in the English top flight.

Pogba has starred for Manchester United in their ideal start to the season and has bagged two Premier League goals and four assists.

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has urged Jose Mourinho to resist dropping Marcus Rashford in place of Anthony Martial.

And after overcoming his surprise at the news, Pogba gave a glowing tribute to Rooney - who he played alongside last season - and says he has been a great example to young players.

But Pogba has impressed at the start of the new campaign as United have set the early Premier League pace.

"He is a big guy, he is very technical on the ball and he has lots of endurance", Martial continued.

He added: 'You always miss a captain and a legend like him. He is amusing, always smiling, he doesn't take himself too seriously, I always see him laughing and he is a good friend of mine. But he predicted that especially the "The Pick" a brilliant future: "If he continues like this and as it progresses, I think he will win the Ballon d'or in the next five years". "He's the same person on and off the pith and he'll continue to be like this".

Mata's focus is now on Saturday evening's home clash with Leicester and the former Chelsea star says United must grab the opportunity to make it three wins from three before the worldwide break.

Martial told Manchester United's website: "We want to win a lot of trophies together at United, and we also want to win the World Cup with France".
