Lisandro Martinez Set To Be Sidelined Until Next Year Due To Foot Injury


Manchester United’s Lisandro Martinez is facing another setback in his quest for full fitness as reports suggest that he will undergo a second operation on his troublesome foot injury, potentially sidelining him until next year.


The Athletic has revealed that the Argentine defender is set to go under the knife once again, with an estimated recovery time of up to three months. This comes after Martinez endured a lengthy absence last season due to surgery to repair a broken metatarsal in his right foot, an injury he sustained during a Europa League clash against Sevilla.

While Martinez made a return during the pre-season, he recently experienced discomfort in the same area during Manchester United’s 3-1 defeat to Arsenal in September. Despite briefly returning to action against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League and Bayern Munich in the Champions League, the persistent issue with his metatarsal persisted. Consequently, the club’s medical team has determined that a second surgery is necessary to ensure a full and lasting recovery from this lingering injury.

This news is a significant blow to Manchester United’s defensive lineup, as they will have to cope without Martinez’s talents until he completes his rehabilitation process, likely keeping him sidelined until the beginning of the new year.
