Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag concerned over Lisandro Martinez's injury blow

Posted : 05 February 2024

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag expressed deep concern over the injury suffered by Lisandro Martinez during the team's 3-0 victory against West Ham, deeming it a "personal disaster" for the defender.


Martinez, who was playing in only his third league game after a more than three-month absence due to a foot injury, had to be substituted in the second half. The injury occurred as he attempted to shield the ball from West Ham's Vladimir Coufal.


Ten Hag shared his apprehensions about the severity of Martinez's injury, stating, "It doesn't look good." The manager acknowledged the uncertainty surrounding the situation, emphasizing the need to await the diagnosis, and conveyed the collective disappointment and sympathy within the team for Martinez. The Argentina international's absence was already notable, having missed 22 games in total with his foot injury before making a comeback against Tottenham on January 14.


The manager highlighted the personal and team-related impact, stating, "First of all, it is a personal disaster when it is really bad, but also for the team, it is really bad because he definitely brings us a lot."


Martinez's versatility and contributions on the field have been significant for Manchester United, making his potential prolonged absence a concern for the team's future performances. The manager and the entire team await further information on the diagnosis, hoping for the best for their injured teammate.
