Anthony Martial’s wife has confirmed the Manchester United striker is not injured, although she moved to delete her comments shortly after posting them on Instagram.
Martial left Wembley on crutches following France’s friendly against England on Tuesday night.
France boss Didier Deschamps hinted that the injury wasn’t too serious, and that it was a knock rather than anything more substantial.
The forward’s wife, Samantha, confirmed that Martial is not seriously hurt:
However, shortly after posting the message, she edited the caption:
Whether or not Martial is actually injured will likely be addressed in Louis van Gaal’s press conference on Friday but the early signs are good.
A lengthy absence for Martial would be disastrous for United as the player has been in superb form for the club in recent weeks. The hope is that he recovers in time to face Watford this weekend.
