Anthony Martial arrived at Manchester United’s training ground on Friday morning after leaving the club’s US tour early to attend the birth of his son.
Anthony Martial left Manchester United’s tour of the US early to fly to Paris to attend the birth of his second son, Swan, last Thursday, and then missed the club’s 4-1 defeat to Liverpool two days later
After the match, Mourinho criticised Martial for not returning to help his teammates, and the 22-year-old also missed their follow up match against Real Madrid.
Speaking on MUTV after losing to Liverpool, Mourinho said: ‘He has the baby and after the baby is born – beautiful baby, full of health, thank God – he should be here and he’s not here.’
Martial responded on Twitter earlier this week, saying: ‘Thank you all for your posts. My little Swan is fine, for the mom it was harder but thanks to God she’s better now.
Sorry but my family will always come first… Back tomorrow in Manchester.’
