PAUL Mullin has issued an update after suffering a punctured lung during Wrexham's friendly against Manchester United. 

The star striker was carried off the field early into Reds' 3-1 win in San Diego following a clash with goalkeeper Nathan Bishop. 

He suffered a punctured lung in the incident, and was rushed to hospital. Mullin posted a photo on social media from his hospital bed showing him wearing an oxygen mask.

On Wednesday night, he issued a further update - saying he's now been discharged from hospital. 

He tweeted: "Discharged, Thank you to everyone @UCSDHealth for the incredible care! Will keep everyone updated but rest and recover is the 1st step!"


Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson described the challenge that led to Mullin's injury as "wreckless"

““It is a real blow for us, you can’t hide away from that," he said.

"I thought it was a clumsy challenge from the goalkeeper and it should have been a straight red. If it is not denying a goalscoring opportunity, it is still a dangerous challenge.

“So, if you add the two scenarios together, he should have been off the pitch. It was a dangerous challenge and Mulls is our talisman."

He added: “I’m fuming with it, I have to be honest about that. It was a clumsy, reckless challenge in a pre-season game. I can’t say any more than the fact I’m not happy with it at all.”
