Lisandro Martinez: Injury sidelines Manchester United defender for eight weeks

Manchester United’s Lisandro Martinez will be sidelined until at least April following knee ligament damage sustained during the team’s 3-0 win against West Ham. Martinez, who was playing his third league game after a foot injury layoff of over three months, was forced off in the second half while contesting with Hammers’ defender Vladimir Coufal.

Fortunately, the 26-year-old won’t need surgery, but the club expects him to be out for a minimum of eight weeks. The club issued a statement expressing well wishes for Martinez’s speedy recovery and anticipation for his return later in the season.

United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, lamented the injury, calling it a “personal disaster” for Martinez and stating it “doesn’t look good.” This setback comes after Martinez missed the latter part of the previous season due to a fractured metatarsal and experienced a setback at the start of the current campaign. Despite missing 22 games with his foot injury, he made his comeback against Tottenham on 14 January.
