Jamie Carragher addresses the masses about his remarks on Man United’s Martinez
English commentator Jamie Carragher finally addresses his remarks on Man United’s defender Lisandro Martinez. In a response to the various backlashes on his comments about Argentinian Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez. Carragher has finally said,
” I think he’s brilliant. To be that small and play at center-back, you’ve obviously got to be a special player, a good player and didn’t think someone of that size could cope in the Premier League, and he has coped. I think he’s been brilliant and has been a big part of United’s spirit.”
“I think it was a game I saw a few weeks ago when he was actually a sub, and someone scored a late goal, and he was right involved. This was only two or three weeks ago. And obviously we saw him in the World Cup, Argentinian. He’s got that fight. I think him and Casemiro coming in…it feels more powerful, stronger. But I didn’t think a center-back that size would be able to cope.”
“Now listen, I think if you can still get exposed, that has to happen at some stage. Every player has got weaknesses. But the best players hide them or make sure they don’t get exposed. And I think he’s a really good player, and he surprised me by how well he’s coped.”
Lisandro Martinez and his current form for Man United
The Argentinian Central back has been in the news nowadays for his impeccable performance on the field for Man United. Replacing Harry Maguire for Man United he has been one of the favorites alongside Rafael Varane for the MAN U’s defense. The defender who helped his nation Argentina to lift the Qatar World Cup has been a perfect addition to Erik Ten Hag’s Man United. The summer transfer from Ajax has proven fruitful for the Manchester Reds. With his string of ongoing performances, it can be added that Man United as well as Premier League is yet to see the rise of a star defender.
