One of the additions this summer for Manchester United was central defender Lisandro Martinez. The 24-year-old Argentine is defined as a strong, portentous defender with a lot of potential to improve.

However, at his young age and with little time in the Premier League, the Argentine is already being acclaimed by the fans of the Red Devils, for his magnificent performances shown in defense. As everything indicates, Erik ten Hag already considers Lisandro Martinez as an undisputed starter in defense.

If we remember, Manchester United were a disaster in the defensive line. With Harry Maguire as starter and captain, and with the options of Bailly or Lindelof as his defensive partner. Now, the team's defensive line has two other names, Varane and Lisandro, a couple that has only conceded 2 goals in the last 4 games.

But not everything is praise for the Argentine, surprisingly, Jamie Carragher, legend of the biggest English club in the Premier League, is criticizing Lisandro Martinez for an incredible reason: his height.

What does Jamie Carragher say about Lisandro?

"He's not a bad player, but to play at this level of football at that height... I wouldn't want to play alongside someone who is 1.75m as a centre-back," he told a British television show. Later, he finished with the following phrase: "if you have that height, you will be exposed as we saw in the first two games".
