'I Can't Wait To See Him Back At My Club!' - Manchester United Fans React After Anthony Martial Scores His First Goal For Sevilla
| Last updated
Anthony Martial appears to have absolutely no regrets about swapping Manchester United for Sevilla after scoring his first goal for the Spanish club.
Martial joined Sevilla on loan in the January window after becoming a peripheral figure at Old Trafford following the summer signings of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho.
The France international made his debut for Sevilla against Osasuna in La Liga earlier this month and grabbed his first assist in another league match against Elche last week.
He has now scored his first goal for the club in Thursday’s 3-1 win over Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League.
Martial played a key role in the match with a superb first-half performance.
He won an early penalty for the home side after being brought down by Zagreb goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic.
From the resulting penalty, Ivan Rakitic stepped up to give Julen Lopetegui's side the lead.
Just before half-time, Zagreb equalised through Mislav Orsic before Lucas Ocampos restored the home side's lead.

And in first-half injury time, Martial grabbed his goal with a neat finish after being played through by Alejandro Gomez.
The 26-year-old was clearly delighted, running to celebrate in front of the Sevilla supporters with a smile on his face that was rarely seen during his time at Old Trafford.
Manchester United fans are already pleading for the forward to return after seeing his impressive first-half display.

Another added: “Anthony Martial, the boy can play.”
Meanwhile, a third joked: “Sign him up @ManUtd. Next big thing.”
Europa League kings Sevilla will now take a healthy lead into their second leg of their knockout round play-off against Dinamo in Croatia on February 24.
