Anthony Martial ruled out of Sevilla's next game with injury
Operation ‘Put Anthony Martial in the shop window’ is not going too well.
After picking up an injury for Sevilla against Real Madrid at the weekend, he has now been ruled out of the club’s next fixture.
AS report Martial is not included in Sevilla’s travelling squad for the away game in La Liga against Levante this evening.
The striker is said to be suffering physical discomfort after being fouled by Eduardo Camavinga on Sunday, in an incident which saw him hobble off shortly after.
0 La Liga goals so far
There is no timeframe on Martial’s recovery, with Sevilla taking it game by game.
The Spanish side do need him, however, amid a battle to finish in the top four. They currently sit fourth with six games remaining, just three points clear of fifth.
Momentum is against Sevilla, with the club sitting in second place when Martial arrived, they have since been overtaken by Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
Martial has not scored since February 17, in the Europa League, and has not scored a single La Liga goal at Sevilla following his arrival on loan in January.
Speaking to AS, Sevilla sporting director Monchi this week said: “He has been injured for eight games. It was a risky bet but less expensive than what people think. We thought it was time to do it.
“His performance has not been excellent, but it has been good because he makes those who play around him better.”
