Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an injury update on Anthony Martial. Martial suffered a knee problem while away on international duty. He was forced off during France’s 2-0 victory over Kazakhstan last Sunday.
Providing an update on the player ahead of the Brighton win, Solskjaer told MUTV: “Unfortunately, he sprained his knee with France.
“It’s always when they go away on internationals… you can keep your fingers crossed and hope they come back fit.
“Paul has played in all three games, 30, 60, 90 minutes, so that was a boost for us.
“Losing Anthony for what might be the rest of the season is very disappointing, especially when reports from there [France] was that it wasn’t anything serious but it looks a bad one.”
Speaking to BT Sport, Solskjaer said of Martial’s injury: “He sprained his knee with France and it looks like he’ll be out for a few weeks, definitely.
“But we hope to get him back before the end of the season, but we’re not sure.”
During this season, the striker has made 36 appearances in which he has scored 7 goals and provided 8 assists.
