Lisandro Martinez reacts to losing his place in Manchester United team

January 10, 2023

Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez believes the competition for places in Erik ten Hag’s team is a good thing.

United are currently in a rich vein of form and have not lost since the domestic season restarted just before Christmas. Since returning just before the end of the year, Martinez has not started for Erik ten Hag’s team.

Before the World Cup, Martinez was a key component of the United starting XI. However, in a couple of recent fixtures, Luke Shaw has played at centre-back with Tyrell Malacia featuring at left back.
