Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez will have a second operation on a foot injury he previously sustained in April.
On Friday, it was confirmed by United that the Argentina international would be out of action for an “extended period” due to the aggravation of a foot problem he suffered in a Europa League tie against Sevilla.
He is now expected to be out for up to three months.
The 25-year-old missed the end of last season and went down injured in United’s 3-1 defeat to Arsenal in September. He did, however, feature against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League and Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
It has now been determined that he will have further surgery in a bid to cure the problem once and for all.
He joins a number of United players – Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia, Sergio Reguilon, Amad and Aaron Wan-Bissaka – who are currently sidelined with injuries.
Ten Hag says it’s a ‘concern’ – why do United have so many injuries?
