Manchester United’s legendary centre-back duo Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic unanimously praised Lisandro Martinez.

The British media ‘Mirror’ reported on the 11th (Korean time) that ‘former Manchester United star Vidic was impressed after Martinez moved to Old Trafford (Man United home stadium)’.

Vidic said: “Lisandro has only been at Manchester United for six months. He is full of energy and likes to defend. He seems to enjoy playing in England. It was a great signing.”

Martinez is an Argentine central defender born in 1998. He is a member of Argentina’s winning team for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. After playing for Ajax in the Netherlands from 2019, he entered Manchester United in the 2022-2023 season. 카지노사이트

He had a great relationship with Manchester United manager Eric Tenhach. Tenhag has been managing Ajax since 2017. He coached Martinez himself. Tenhag was first appointed as Manchester United manager. Tenhag took winger Anthony and defender Martinez from Ajax with him on his way to Manchester United.

Martinez is 175 cm tall. He is small among central defenders. He had no big league experience. At the time of his signing, he had a question mark attached. However, Martinez has now established himself as a permanent regular at Manchester United.

“People were worried about whether he would be able to play in England,” said Vidic.

Ferdinand, who led Manchester United’s heyday with Vidic, agreed.

“Martínez is domineering, aggressive and a leader. He communicates well. He has a good personality. He is there at important moments. I was one of those who questioned Martinez when he came,” said Ferdinand.

However, Manchester United also needs reinforcements at the center back. Currently, the duo of Martinez and Rafael Varane is strong. But only two. Harry Maguire’s performance declined. A sale in the transfer market this summer is likely. Baran entered his 30s. Kim Min-jae (Napoli) is being discussed as a new partner for Martinez.
