Lisandro Martinez has been a fantastic signing for Manchester United, following Erik ten Hag to Old Trafford from Ajax. Already a fans’ favourite because of his no nonsense approach to the game, coupled with his brilliant composure on the ball, Martinez has revealed the feeling is mutual.
Speaking with the club’s official website, Martinez has spoken about how happy he is in Manchester
I feel at home since the first day here, when I [first] put my foot in Carrington I remember it was an amazing feeling. So I’m happy to be with him, to work with him. I know his mentality, he knows my mentality as well. So, in a quick time we get the first trophy so we have to work for everything, we have to believe. This club demands to win every game, every title, so we are happy to take this responsibility.
United take on Real Betis this evening and are in a great position after winning the home leg 4-1. Martinez has claimed they are not getting complacent though.
[In] the game we start 0-0. We have to be ready. We need full focus tomorrow because it’s going to be a hard game for us. So if you are not focused you can lose this game. For sure the first leg was a great result for us, but it doesn’t say anything. In football everything can happen, so we have to be ready.
I think it is very nice to play in Europe. We have to enjoy [it]. I think tomorrow it’s going to be a really beautiful game, here in Spain against [Real] Betis with their people, for sure with our fans as well. So, yeah, it’s going to be a nice game.
