Paul Mullin responds after being left with punctured lung by Man United youngster

Wrexham played Manchester United in a friendly match on Tuesday

Wrexham star Paul Mullin has responded after he was left with a punctured lung by a Manchester United player during their friendly clash.

On Tuesday, the Welsh club were up against United at the Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego, California.

Erik ten Hag went with a youthful side as the regular first-team stars were rested.

In the end, Wrexham came out 3-1 winners thanks to goals from Elliot Lee, Aaron Hayden and Sam Dalby. Marc Jurado was on the scoresheet for the Red Devils.

However, the match was marred by a scary moment between United goalkeeper Nathan Bishop and Wrexham man Mullin.

With just seven minutes on the clock, Bishop clattered into Mullin, leaving him with a punctured lung.

Mullin has since responded by giving fans an update via his Instagram.

Posting a picture of him in hospital, he wrote: “Thank you for all your messages! All good here!”


Bishop has since taken to Twitter to apologise to Mullin.

He wrote: “Just wanted to share my sincerest apologies to @PMullin7. A complete misjudgement and a genuine accident with 0 malicious intent at all!

“Wishing you the speediest recovery and hope to see you back scoring goals as soon as possible!”

Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson was far from happy with the 23-year-old’s challenge.

He said after the match: “I’m fuming about it, I’ve got to be honest with you.

“It was a clumsy, reckless challenge in a pre-season game and I’m not happy with it at all.”

Parkinson continued: “We just got a call from the hospital to say there’s a small puncture in his lung. It’ll probably be tomorrow morning before we get the specialist to have a look at it.”

After the 3-1 defeat by Wrexham, United will next take on Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in the United States. Before heading back to the UK to face Lens and Athletic Club.
