Manchester United forward Anthony Martial will take no part in Saturday’s FA Cup final against Manchester City after suffering an injury against Fulham.
Martial suffered the injury after coming off the bench in United’s final Premier League game of the season on Sunday against Fulham, and scans have shown the full extent of the damage.
In a statement published by the club earlier on Tuesday, it said: “Anthony Martial is out of Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup final against Manchester City due to injury.
“The France international strained his hamstring towards the end of Sunday’s 2-1 win against Fulham at Old Trafford.
“Assessments have since revealed a muscle tear that rules the 27-year-old out of the Wembley showdown.”
Despite enjoying a good pre-season, Martial missed the opening stages of United’s season due to a hamstring injury while he was also out for the major part of the second half of the campaign.
The Frenchman has played 29 times for the Red Devils this campaign netting nine goals in the process in all competitions with six coming in the Premier League.
Despite boasting the qualities to succeed, the forward’s persistent injuries have been a worry in the last few years and could spell the end of his time at Old Trafford this season.
