Bruno Fernandes has penned a special tribute for Anthony Martial following the Frenchman's exit from Old Trafford.
Martial departed Man United on Wednesday, January 26, completing a loan switch to Sevilla for the rest of the 2021/22 season.
His exit came having played a minor role in United's campaign this term due to injures and poor form which limited him to just 11 appearances.

His departure from the Theatre of Dreams appears to have brewed a somber mood at United, with Bruno taking to social media to send the Frenchman a touching message.
The Portuguese playmaker hailed his "special" connection with Martial, revealing he will miss linking up with him on the pitch.
"My friend... our connection on and off the pitch was always special. Wish you all the best for the rest of the season. Go and shine bro @martial_9," Bruno posted on Instagram.
