Martinez: Old Trafford was simply amazing

Tuesday 23 August 2022 09:46

Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez was impressed with the backing from the Old Trafford crowd during the Reds’ 2-1 win over Liverpool on Monday evening.

United got off the mark in the new Premier League season following a thrilling performance at an atmospheric Theatre of Dreams. 

It is safe to say that summer signing Martinez enjoyed his first experience of his new home under the lights, and his showing on the pitch displayed that, as the defender was voted as your Man of the Match.

Off the back of his first Reds win, Martinez spoke of the importance of the result as a building block, while also recognising the role of the home supporters. 

 

“UNITED!! Great team and fighting spirit, only the first step but an important one to keep growing stronger together,” Lisandro posted on social media after the game.

“OT [Old Trafford] was simply amazing. 

“Thank you for the support!! Vamossss!!”

Following a memorable night all round, Martinez’s United team-mates have also shared messages with our fans.

The Reds posted about the Old Trafford support, the significance of the result and the need to now look forward and back up the performance in our next outing.

It was also a night to remember at our M16 home for new signing Casemiro and our four European Championship-winning Lionesses. 

Both the Brazilian and United Women’s England stars - Mary Earps, Nikita Parris, Alessia Russo and Ella Toone - were presented on the pitch before kick-off to a warm reception from the Theatre of Dreams faithful.
