Lisandro Martinez Urges Manchester United Squad to Show Fighting Spirit for the Remainder of the Season
This season, Lisandro Martinez has been an excellent addition to the Manchester United squad. After replacing Harry Maguire in the team, the Argentina international has already formed one of the Premier League’s best center-back pairings with Raphael Varane.
Manchester United supporters will be hoping that Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, and other key players can stay fit for the rest of the season, as the next two months will be extremely busy.
After winning the Carabao Cup in February, United is still on track to win the Europa League and FA Cup, as well as finish in the top four of the Premier League.
However, United’s good form this season has been marred by a number of setbacks. After a 2-0 loss to Newcastle last week, the Magpies jumped ahead in the league table, but United bounced back on Wednesday night with a 1-0 victory over Brentford at Old Trafford.
Speaking to reporters about what is required between now and the end of the season, Martinez reminded his teammates that they must give their all in every game.
“We spoke, we spoke as a team,” Martinez said, as quoted by The Independent.
“We know it’s not possible to play like that, especially these kinds of games.
“We have to fight more than the opponent, we have to play with more passion, we have to play with more energy. Now, every game is a final and you have to play with passion, you have to be ready, you have to be sharp, you have to fight for these three points.
“If you don’t do that, I think it’s not showing respect for this club. You have to be always fighting, every game — fighting for the badge.”
