Lisandro Martínez quickly got into the pockets of Manchester United fans, even before the title at the World Cup in Qatar 2022. They even dedicated songs to the Argentinian defender, who was quickly given a nickname that describes what they expect from him, “Butcher “. . And this Tuesday, when he returned to the bench of the ‘Red Devils’ against Bournemouth, for the Premier League, they gave him a very special flag with the colors of Argentina and which will remain in his memory.
After the formal greeting, ‘Licha’ Martínez entered with his world champion gold medal hung around his neck all the way to the center of the field, where his teammates waited to greet him -again- and congratulate him for achieving the third star for the Argentina national team.
At that moment applause rained down from the stands in contrast to the intense drizzle falling from the sky, while in one of the sectors the fans displayed a fairly large flag with a butcher knife and light blue and white colors.
The 24-year-old from Entre Ríos joined the ‘Red Devils’ this season after an outstanding performance at Ajax in the Netherlands and despite playing just 14 games (out of a possible 16, as he was celebrating with the Argentina national team) he managed to attract the attention of United fans.
