Manchester United legend Patrice Evra spoke to Betfair about Erik ten Hag’s team and their current good form in the Premier League, in which they have won three consecutive matches. Nevertheless, the Frenchman had to stop for a second and praise the recently named Manchester United Player of the month of August.

The former Red Devils’ left-back sees in Lisandro the same passion and aggressiveness as other great South American players: “Lisandro Martinez is a pit bull, he’s going to give his life and that’s what we need. I have played with Gabriel Heinze, Carlos Tevez, Paulo Dybala, Lucas Bernardi, and South Americans play with passion and they give everything”.

He claims that he knew from day one that Martinez was something special and that he isn’t surprised about his current form: “It’s like they are going to war. I remember when Martinez signed for United, he said every game is important, and people started to judge him too soon. I’m not surprised with what he is doing and how well he is performing”.

As Evra said, Lisandro Martinez was judged way too soon by the English media and its pundits. They all suggested that his height was going to be a problem when facing taller strikers, but that hasn’t been a problem for the 24-year-old centre-back, who has kept two clean sheets in a row for Manchester United, helping the team get the three points.

The butcher

Erik ten Hag has been proven correct by his own player. He pushed the Man United board into spending €58 million for him as he needed a left-footed centre-back that he could trust. He has now formed a great centre-back partnership with Raphael Varane relegating the team’s captain Harry Maguire to the bench.
