Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Anthony Martial could be ruled out for the rest of Manchester United’s season with an injury sustained on international duty with France.
Martial limped out of France’s clash against Kazakhstan during the international break with a knee problem and Solskjaer has noted that the problem is worse than first feared.
The Frenchman was omitted entirely from United’s squad to face Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League and the United manager confirmed before kick-off that he is out with a sprained knee.
“Unfortunately he’s [Martial] sprained his knee with France, it’s always when they go away for internationals,” he told MUTV, as quoted by the MEN.
“It’s fingers crossed and hope they’re going to come back fit — losing Anthony for what might be the rest of the season is very disappointing.”
