Martinez is not coming to the field this season. The match against Sevilla was like a nightmare for United. Even with a two-goal lead, Eric ten Haag’s team could not win in the end. He has two injuries.
Lisandro Martinez suffered a serious injury in the match against Sevilla. The extent of the injury was so terrible that the Argentine star had to leave the field immediately. Many people assumed then that this season will not heal anymore injuries. A day after the end of the test, that fear proved true. The Argentine star is out for the rest of the season after breaking his metatarsal bone.

Another United player Rafael Varan also got injured in the match. The French defender will also be out of action for a few weeks, the doctors said. The United authorities gave this information in a statement on Saturday.
“Lisandro Martinez has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a broken metatarsal bone in his foot,” United’s statement said. However, the Argentine defender is expected to recover within a certain period of time in preparation for next season. Rafael Varane, who came on as a substitute in the same match, will be sidelined for several weeks. Everyone at Manchester United wishes Lisandro and Varane all the best and a speedy recovery.’
The injury of two star footballers is putting United in danger. Because four more footballers of the team have been dropped from the squad before the next match against Nottingham Forest. Now Martinez and Varan also joined the list.
The current time in the league is very important for United. Ten Haag’s team is third in the table with 56 points in 29 matches. They are 3 points ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham. However, if they can’t maintain that gap in these 9 matches, they won’t be playing in the Champions League next time like this season.
The Red Devils also have good chances in the Europa League and FA Cup. So losing the best players at crucial times can ultimately put pressure on the team.
