There is a chance that we see Lisandro Martinez feature in the Man United squad vs Brentford tomorrow.

Manchester United’s injury issues have been well documented this season. The Old Trafford club have been dealing without many players for large periods of time. Perhaps the problem that has hurt us the most is Lisandro Martinez.

The Argentine did come back over the hectic winter period, after dealing with a recurrence of his metatarsal injury, but swiftly picked up another injury which ruled him out for another few months.

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve seen Licha back out in training for both club and country, with rumours suggesting there was a possibility of seeing the Argentine back out on the pitch against Brentford on Saturday.

Well, Erik ten Hag has since offered a positive injury update on Licha, confirming that the United star has a ‘chance’ at returning to the match day squad against Brentford.

Check out what the gaffer had to say in full here:

“Yes, there is a chance [Lisandro will be in the squad],” Ten Hag told the media, including ManUtd.com.

“We have missed him [in] every game because he brings a composure in the team and a calmness in the team and, at the same time, a winning attitude. 

“He can express this very clearly, he can transfer that to the team and that contributes to our levels.”

My initial impression is that Martinez will likely have to settle for a spot among the substitutes if he is included, though that in itself will be a massive boost to the whole club. We’ve certainly missed his quality, aggressive style of defending and leadership skills.

With the season rapidly approaching the business end, this is a timely return. Yes, it may take Martinez a few games to get fully back up to speed, but having him back in the defensive third is massive. Hopefully, he’s fit enough to play a major role in both the Premier League and perhaps more importantly, FA Cup.

Welcome back, Licha!
