Anthony Martial has apologised to his fiancee following revelations he sent sex texts to a model behind her back when she was eight months pregnant.
The £75,000-a-week Manchester United winger, 23, took to Instagram to admit he had “made mistakes” after The Sun told how he got steamy with model Malika Semichi, 20, after meeting her at a Paris nightclub.
Martial wrote: “I would like to apologize to my relatives, my beautiful family and especially my fiancée for the harm I have done in recent months!
“I made mistakes and I’m sorry it will not happen again!”
In December, it was reported the day after meeting Martial, French Malika started receiving X-rated messages and pictures apparently taken at The Lowry hotel, Manchester.
She said: “To start with it was just innocent stuff like ‘how are you doing’ and silly selfies.
“But then he started asking more and more personal questions. He seemed really into me.
“I knew he had a girlfriend with a baby on the way, but I just tried to put it to the back of my mind.”
She added: “In one of the messages he asked me for a threesome but I wouldn’t do that.”
“He was pestering me for a meet-up. He said I’d have to come and see him in Manchester so no one would see us. He was so scared of his girlfriend finding out.
“I entertained it for a bit because I’d liked him so much. But I knew how wrong it was. He had a three-month-old baby at home.
“If the circumstances were different I definitely would have pursued a relationship with him.
“As it stands, I think he should be ashamed of himself.”
