ANTHONY MARTIAL’S Manchester United agent has launched a stunning defence of his client by claiming he's better than David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Frenchman has yet again struggled for form this season with just three goals and assists in his last 13 Premier League games.

In October under Jose Mourinho, the 23-year-old looked to have turned a corner scoring six goals in eight games.
But the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in December has done nothing to improve his form, with huge question marks about his attitude and work rate.
SunSport revealed the new United manager has had enough and will listen to offers for the attacker this summer.
But Martial’s agent Philippe Lamboley and his agency USFA have taken to social media to defend their client, comparing his record across the first four seasons of his United career with those of Ryan Giggs, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.
USFA stats showed Martial has a better goals-per-game return than the three Old Trafford legends.
The numbers were posted on Instagram to their 2,296 followers with a caption saying: “Criticising is easy, the truth is on the pitch.”
The French international has scored 48 goals in 173 games – 0.28 goals per game (GPG), a better return than Giggs who hit 39 in 195, 0.2 GPG.
Beckham scored 40 in 194 games 0.21 GPG and Ronaldo bagged 50 in 190, 0.26 GPG.
Martial was not in the squad that drew at Huddersfield on Sunday and ended any hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
