Photo: Anthony Martial all smiles with girlfriend after missing Man United’s draw
The Manchester United striker has some fun with his girlfriend on social media
Anthony Martial snapped a selfie with his bashful girlfriend on Saturday night after the striker missed Manchester United’s 1-1 draw at Stoke City.
The France international was a surprise omission from Jose Mourinho’s match day squad after Martial started in their 1-1 stalemate with Liverpool last week.
The 21-year-old failed to get the better of Liverpool debutant Trent Alexander-Arnold and was taken off in the second half at Old Trafford.
According to reports in the British media, Martial’s camp were annoyed at the Frenchman’s omission for the trip to the Britannia Stadium.
However, the former Monaco star didn’t appear to be fazed after he posted the above snap with what looked like his girlfriend Melanie Da Cruz Pireshis Instagram page.
The Manchester United striker has found his first-team opportunities limited this season following the appointment of Mourinho as Louis van Gaal’s successor.
The Red Devils will take on Hull City in the second leg of their EFL Cup semi-final at the KCOM Stadium on Thursday night.
