Martial’s ex-wife sticks the knife in regarding jersey change

Manchester United announced their squad numbers late last week, with Jose Mourinho giving the incoming Zlatan Ibrahimovic the prestigious number nine jersey. That meant a change for Anthony Martial, and the Frenchman clearly wasn’t happy with the switch.

The talented forward was given another colossal jersey in Manchester United’s history, the number 11. However, Martial had already built up a brand with the #9 shirt, which must have been infuriating – particularly if he wasn’t warned that a change would be coming.

Now, his ex-wife Samantha has really stuck the knife in. She has taken to Instagram to ‘like’ Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s picture in which he announced he’d be taking Martial’s number.

The pairs break-up is well documented, and this is a sly dig from Mrs Martial, who clearly still has hard feelings towards Manchester United’s new sensation, and I guess that’s understandable if what the media have reported is true.
