Speaking to the media after the EFL Cup final, Erik ten Hag said: “Before the game you asked me about the influence of Casemiro and Raphael Varane — they know how to win trophies. Look at all the Champions League wins they had.
“But I think also Lisandro Martinez — I had him in Ajax, won trophies with him — the same with Antony. You need that personality and typical character in your squad to win in the end. Martinez is definitely one of them.
“You can count on him and you can rely on him and he showed that again today. That bond together with Rapha is really strong. As a manager on the sidelines, you are composed and can have confidence they will sort it out.”
