Cape Town - Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin confirmed his impression that his fellow countryman, Anthony Martial, is mature beyond his years.

"He's like you see him in a game, very calm, very relaxed...an amazing talent," he said.

"Many people will have been a bit (surprised) because of the prize tag but he's a very intelligent guy and he will be a great player for the future of Manchester United."

It was left to the wise old manager, Louis van Gaal, to try to damped down some of the excitement, but even the Dutchman could not conceal his pleasure and pride at a player he went out on an expensive limb for.

"Anthony Martial is already special because we paid a lot of money for him," he told reporters.

"He's very important for us already.

"In three matches he has shown a lot. I am very happy with him but we and he have to keep our feet on the ground."

Martial has scored three goals in three matches for Manchester United.
