Manchester United receives unexpected injury boost before Premier League conclusion and FA Cup final

Manchester United Receive Injury Boost Ahead of Premier League Finale and FA Cup Final

As Manchester United prepares to face Brighton in their final Premier League match and Manchester City in the FA Cup final, Erik ten Hag’s squad has received a timely boost with Anthony Martial’s return to training.

Martial, who has been sidelined since December due to groin surgery, is making strides in his recovery. Although he faces a tight deadline to feature in the remaining games of the season, his recent participation in training sessions suggests he may be ready to return to action.

Earlier this month, Erik ten Hag confirmed that Martial had resumed partial training, marking a significant step in his rehabilitation process. Martial’s involvement in full training ahead of the crucial fixture against Brighton and Hove Albion indicates his progress.

With his contract set to expire this summer, Martial’s nine-year tenure at Old Trafford appears to be concluding. After the 3-2 victory over Newcastle United on Wednesday night, the French forward was seen acknowledging the supporters, hinting at a possible farewell.

Martial’s career at United has been marred by injuries over the past three seasons, limiting his appearances. This issue has drawn criticism from former United captain Roy Keane, who emphasized the need for reliable players.

“If you’re always injured, you’re no use to anyone. Sure, every team has some injuries,” Keane remarked. “But there are certain players in that squad who are always injured. You can’t depend on them to show up every week and play for Manchester United.”
