Lisandro Martinez

Martinez set for spell on sidelines

Friday 29 September 2023 12:42

Lisandro Martinez will be out of action for an extended period due to an aggravation of the foot injury he suffered in April.

The Argentinian defender experienced the setback in our Premier League game against Arsenal earlier this month.

Martinez bravely continued playing for the following two games against Brighton & Hove Albion and Bayern Munich.

Martinez has made six appearances for United this season.

But it has now been determined that he needs a period on the sidelines for recovery and rehabilitation. Assessment is ongoing to decide next steps.

Everyone at Manchester United sends Lisandro our best wishes and looks forward to him coming back as soon as possible.

Sergio Reguilon will also be absent from this Saturday’s Premier League game against Crystal Palace with a minor injury.

It's our second meeting with the Eagles this week, after Tuesday's 3-0 Carabao Cup third-round victory.
