Anthony Martial was forced off with the problem during France’s World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan last weekend.

The 25-year-old was absent from United’s squad for their Premier League clash with Brighton on Sunday and Solskjaer is concerned he could be sidelined for the rest of the campaign.

“Unfortunately he’s sprained his knee with France,” Solskjaer told MUTV.

“It’s always when they go away on internationals, you’ve fingers crossed and you hope that they’re going to come back fit.

“Paul (Pogba) played in all three games so that was a boost for us but losing Anthony for what might be the rest of the season is very disappointing, especially when the reports and signals from there are that it wasn’t serious but it looks a bad one, yeah.”

Speaking to BT Sport, Solskjaer offered a glimmer of hope that Anthony Martial might make it back before United’s season is over, saying “He sprained his knee with France and it looks like he’ll be out for a few weeks, definitely.

“We hope to get him back before the end of the season but we’re not sure.”

Solskjaer did not mention if Martial would be a doubt for the France squad at the delayed Euro 2020, which starts in June.

Martial has scored just seven goals for United this season, with none in his last nine appearances.
