When asked about what he feels about criticism from the English media after joining Man United, Lisandro Martinez said: “The English press? I’m not even giving a ear to that.
“I trust in myself and I work on myself. I’m happy to be in the best league in the world.”
Martinez featured in Argentina’s 3-0 win over Honduras on Friday, helping them keep a clean sheet and putting in a solid outing.
The Argentine center-back has often been mocked for his height since arriving at Old Trafford but has silenced his critics with a series of brilliant performances in recent months.
After enduring disappointing first two games at the start of the campaign under Ten Hag at Manchester United, the former Ajax man has seemed to found his feet going forward as he has put up a superb display at the heart of Man United’s defense alongside Raphael Varane.
