Manchester United fans hail ‘absolute class’ Lisandro Martinez after his impressive pre-season debut… and one takes a dig at Harry Maguire and Co by admitting it’s ‘so good to see a CB who isn’t going to screw up with the ball at his feet’ 

Manchester United fans have heaped praise on Lisandro Martinez after he made his pre-season debut during Sunday’s draw with Rayo Vallecano. 

The 24-year-old Argentinian defender officially completed his £55million move from Ajax last week to reunite with Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford. 

United played their final pre-season game against the LaLiga side on Sunday and they were held to a 1-1 draw.

Amad Diallo gave United the lead with a close-range rebound three minutes after the break but Rayo Vallecano drew level through Alvaro Garcia Rivera’s finish after 57th minutes. 

Despite being held to a draw, it was the performance of Martinez that caught the attention of supporters on social media before he was replaced by Eric Bailly on the hour mark. 

One fan wrote: ‘Wah!!! This guy is going to be great and too good… imagine how good he is even with just few hours of training… He will actually be a serious plus for united when fully fit’.
