Manchester United office is aware that right now they might have to say goodbye to the season of Lisandro Martinez with the red devils, and the fact is that they could be looking to go ahead and make sure that they get the right diagnosis to make sure that they make the right decision when it comes to the future and if they need to sign a new center back.

"He got a little injury. He done his knee. I see he tweaked it. I think that looks like ligaments, man. He tried to carry on and then said, 'No, no, no I’ve got to go'. So, listen, if he’s out, it kills it. You can see with him and Luke Shaw on that side." Ferdinand said on the injury that might keep him out for the season as well.

Ferdinand added, "And those two are really good with the ball in terms of setting up attacks, the ball generally comes from that side. Any of the good stuff we do, Martinez, even you see for the first goal, he clips it in." and this could change the whole idea for the defense in the next part of the season.

"So that will be disappointing. We’ve had so many injuries and he’s one of them that’s been out of a while and he’s probably one of our most influential players." Ferdinand ended and this also shows that the role of Martinez on the team might have to change if he keeps getting injured for big parts of the season like he has done in the past years with the team.
