LOUIS SAHA has backed Manchester United to superb form under new interim boss Ralf Rangnick.

The Red Devils are desperate to reverse their disappointing season after five losses in their last seven Premier League outings.



They are expected to recruit Rangnick until the end of the season before he goes upstairs in a consulting role.

And Saha predicts a lot of success immediately under the German manager – with fellow Frenchman Martial figuring prominently.



Saha, 43, said 101greatgoals.com: “Because the Premier League is a marathon, I always think they can get back in shape and run.

“And when they do, United will be unstoppable as these four top players are some of the best in the Premier League.



“Of course, they will have to defend themselves and make sure there is the right balance.

“But when they finally find the right formula and things click – especially in their heads where by the minute there’s too much thinking – these players are unstoppable when they play naturally.

“On their game, no one can touch that front four or five.

“Martial, when he’s in top form he’s unplayable. Put them all in the right position and the right conditions and they’ll fly.

“But it comes down to humility and the state of mind.

“I’m sure they’re confident guys, but they have to have the mindset to do the things they don’t like in order to work hard for the team.”

Martial, 25, had played less than 300 minutes this season before Michael Carrick gave him a rare starting spot at Villarreal on Tuesday.

He couldn’t add to his only goal this season – in the draw with Everton on October 2 – but Saha keeps his faith in the ex-Monaco star.

Martial only managed seven goals last season, but scored 23 in the 2019-20 campaign.

Rangnick should enter for six months to stabilize the rocked United ship before a standing rendezvous in the summer.

Mauricio Pochettino and Brendan Rodgers are still at the top of the wishlist.

However, Carrick will remain in charge for Sunday’s trip to face league leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
