Manchester United have been handed a very good news on Anthony Martial’s injury after his wife, Samantha Martial used social media to confirm her husband’s well being. Samantha confirmed on her Instagram account that Martial’s ankle injury is not serious and there is nothing to worry about. Samantha also thanked the fans for showing their love and support for her husband.
This was her Instagram post, which has given renewed hopes to Man United fans about seeing the 19-year old striker for the game against Watford. Martial was substituted on the 67th minute in the England vs France friendly last night after the player had got a knock on his ankle. According to PA, Anthony Martial left the Wembley stadium on crutches.
Despite the initial fears, injury is not serious and it looks as if, he might be available for selection for the weekend’s game. Although, the official scan reports are yet to arrive, but we are going by what Samantha is saying and are believing that Manchester United forward’s injury is not that serious.
Louis Van Gaal would also hope that is the fact as he looks to get his team back after 2 weeks following the international break. United are currently 4th in the league table, and have a chance to close in the gape on Arsenal and Manchester City with their early kick-off against Watford. Top 4 are separated by just 2 points and a win for The Red Devils would hand them a chance to top the league table if results elsewhere go in their favor.
