Man United Defender Martinez To Be Sidelined For Weeks With Injury

Manchester United have announced that Argentina defender Lisandro Martinez will be sidelined for an “extended period” with injury.

Martinez sustained a fractured metatarsal in April’s Europa League quarter-final first leg against Sevilla which kept him out for around two months.

According to talkSPORT, quoting United, he is expected to be out for a similar timescale.

“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 and Bayern Munich.

“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.”

Meanwhile United are without a number of key players due to injuries.

Summer signing Sergio Reguilon is the latest player to be sidelined and will miss the game against Crystal Palace on Saturday with a ‘minor injury’.
