New Manchester United signing Lisandro Martinez has drawn comparison with compatriot Gabriel Heinze. The comparison between ex-Ajax Amsterdam star Martinez and Gabriel Heinze was made by Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand on his Vibe with Five YouTube channel. According to Ferdinand, Martinez reminds him of Heinze but he’s a little better on the ball. The former Manchester United defender can see similarities between the two Argentines. Gabriel Heinze and Rio Ferdinand were teammates at Manchester United while Sir Alex Ferguson was the manager.
Martinez showed some of his attributes positively during the Brighton game on the occasion of his United debut, but his performance was not convincing. In his second game as a Manchester United player, Martinez was hooked after 45 minutes as Brentford ran riot against the Red Devils. The Bees scored four first half goals on the way to an emphatic 4-0 win at the expense of the Red Devils. Martinez had played 90 minutes against Brighton.
Martinez played his best game in a Manchester United shirt as they recorded a surprising 2-1 home win over Liverpool. He was assured defensively thus helping his new team to a first league win of the season.
