The former Liverpool player Graeme Souness has criticized Lisandro Martinez, who joined Manchester United this summer.
Martinez, according to Souness, is not very good at anything, and playing against Erling Haaland of Manchester City will be a mismatch.
Earlier in the current summer transfer season, Martinez moved to Man United from Ajax.
But Souness thinks Martinez’s height may pose greater issues in the future, especially when he encounters more powerful forwards like Haaland.
“I was watching the game at the weekend, they [Southampton] were putting Che Adams up against him and the goalkeeper and other members of that Southampton team were loading it down that left-hand side trying to stick it on his [Martinez] head,” Souness told talkSPORT.
“He’s vertically challenged and I was racking my mind to come up with anyone who’s played in the Premier League or indeed the [old] first division that size and been a success.
“I think he will get sorely tested and be found out going forward. Against Haaland, Nunes or Mitrovic, oh dear me, it will be a mismatch.”
“He’s not particularly special at anything,” Souness added
