Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez responded to Jamie Carragher’s comments regarding his height. The Argentina international has settled quickly at Old Trafford since joining from Ajax last summer.
He has played 22 Premier League games so far, scoring one goal and helping the Red Devils register six clean sheets. The 25-year-old defender won the Manchester United Player of the Month accolade in August 2022.
While speaking to the media recently, Lisandro Martinez claimed that it’s not easy to play as a defender with his frame.
He said: “My goal is to get trophies here, I always train hard and, like I said, in an interview before, I don’t have to show anything, I just have to show it here, with my people.
“For example, in the beginning, in Argentina, it was the same. But it’s normal because, in football, it’s not normal to play as a centre-back with my height. It’s not easy as well, you know.”
Sesko is currently among the most promising attackers in Europe. He is set to join RB Leipzig at the end of the current season. However, the youngster may not even get the chance to don the Leipzig jersey as Erik ten Hag is keen to add him to his squad.
The 19-year-old attacker has played 66 games (in all competitions) for Salzburg so far, registering 19 goals and 10 assists. He won the Slovenian Footballer of the Year in 2022.
Manchester United are currently third in the Premier League table, with 49 points from 24 games. They will next lock horns against Newcastle United in the final of the EFL Cup on Sunday. Lisandro Martinez is likely to play a key role in the game.
