The Manchester United faithful have made their appreciation for the efforts of summer signing Lisandro Martinez clear once more on Saturday evening.
Erik ten Hag’s troops, of course, were back in action a short time ago.
Hopeful of building on a bounce-back downing of arch rivals Liverpool last time out, the Red Devils made the trip to England’s south coast, for a meeting with Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton.
And, when all was said and done, make it a pair of wins on the spin is precisely what United managed.
A hard-fought 90 minutes was ultimately decided by a solitary goal, courtesy of Bruno Fernandes ten minutes into the 2nd-half of play.
As alluded to above, though, evidently, it was not match-winner Fernandes who was viewed as the key to their side’s eventual victory on the part of the Red Devils faithful.
This honour, instead, has been reserved for a member of the club’s backline.
As confirmed in a statement across the club’s social media platforms a short time ago, Lisandro Martinez has been voted as Man United’s Man of the Match for the 2nd weekend running, on the back of his latest commanding display:
‘Following another dominant performance versus Southampton, Lisandro Martinez has been voted your man of the match. To celebrate, we are giving fans around the world the chance to WIN a 22/23 hero printed Lisandro Martinez shirt (incl. name & number) in a size of your choice.’
