“My feelings are indescribable I can not explain what's happening right now in my life    Thank you god”

Jose Mourinho confirmed the absence of the striker in Manchester United’s penalty victory over AC Milan and stated that he requested to be alongside his partner.

Mourinho said, “I found out that Martial was going to Paris when he told me. It was two or three days ago.

“When it is personal reasons, everyone analyses that the way he thinks is the correct way.

“When a man is going to be a father — in this case, it's the second time he is going to be a father — and he decides it very important for him to go, nobody has the right to stop him to go.”

The newly born Swan is Martial’s second child, his first is a daughter he had three years ago with his ex-girlfriend Samantha Jacquelinet.

Mourinho is reportedly keen to offload Martial, it remains to be seen if he will remain at Old Trafford at the close of the summer transfer window.
