Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has posted an update on the injury he suffered against Watford.

Martial was involved in a clash of heads with Watford’s Janmaat, and as a result, was taken off the pitch before half time.

Martial posted “Feel much better today. Thanks for all your support and your messages!” on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

Manchester United manager José Mourinho was asked about Martial’s injury after the 3-1 loss to Watford. Mourinho revealed that he doesn’t know much about the injury, and maintained his stance that it was a foul and the referee should have stopped play.

“I had to be on the game at that time and not worrying with Anthony,” Mourinho told reporters at Vicarage Road. “I have not had time to see about the situation. It wasn’t an action to go to hospital. It was an action for a free-kick against Watford and obviously not a goal.”

Pressed further on the matter at the end of the press conference, the manager continued: “I don’t know, I promise I don’t know. You are asking about things I cannot tell you.

“I didn’t know why he came off, whether he was injured in his knee, his ankle or his head. I don’t know. I just know, in that moment, he is not in a condition to carry on. I don’t know why. I just know I had to change. I don’t know yet what happened.”
