A few eyebrows were raised this week when Louis Van Gaal splashed out a whopping £36m on relatively unknown striker Anthony Martial. 

The French youngster has been compared to Thierry Henry with his fast, attacking playing style, and he comes with the Cantona seal of approval, but many fans in the UK were left scratching their heads when the deal was announced. 

Van Gaal will be hoping there won't be any repeats of this embarrassing incident from ligue 1, where Martial misses an open goal and appears to run off as if he'd scored. Always best to check stuff like that.
