Lisandro Martinez’s love affair with Manchester United has continued with a new fan chant.
The £57m summer signing from Ajax continues to fit right in at Old Trafford after leaving the Netherlands with Erik ten Hag, and was once again the star of their latest win.
Martinez was handed the man of the match award in a 3-0 Carabao Cup semi-final win over Nottingham Forest, which could see United claim their first trophy since 2017 if they hold firm. return match.
Marcus Rashford, Wout Weghorst and Bruno Fernandes were the scorers in a convincing victory, but Martinez stood out with 92% passing accuracy and his five most tackles of any player.
And following the win, fans made sure to let their Argentine World Cup winner know how much he was loved with a familiar chant.
As he sang “Argentina, Argentina, Argentina” on the other side, Martinez felt the love, with his compatriot Alejandro Garnacho probably realizing it wasn’t for him.
Martinez reposted the clip with the caption, “Still there! Thank you for always being there.”
In his last loss to Arsenal, Martinez scored his first United goal, and after another stellar performance, club legend Roy Keane was full of praise.

“He’s proud of his defense which is great to see,” he said. “A lot of modern defenders know it’s about what they do in possession. He wants to defend, he takes great pride in that.
“You need that balance, it’s really important. Harry Maguire when he plays left-sided when he’s right-handed, it’s very difficult.
“Obviously the manager has worked with him, we talk about that character, that desire. We’ve already seen the benefits of having him at the club over the past few months.
“He wants to defend. He looks like the right character, the kind of boy you want to be in the trenches with. We saw it tonight, United were rolling towards the end but they still wanted to defend.
“We talk about the importance of scoring all three goals but from a defender’s perspective they will be delighted with a clean sheet.”
