Lisandro Martinez had a cold chat with Ajax technical director Gerry Hamstra before he joined Manchester United from Ajax this summer.
Erik ten Hag identified Martinez as one of his top priorities this summer and when Ajax tried to stand in his way, the Argentine had no of that and forced his move out.
It has been reported that the words he told Gerry Hamstra played a huge role in securing his dream move to Manchester United to reunite with his former boss, Ten Hag.
Lisandro Martinez has been a revelation since his summer move to the Theatre of Dreams, and won the man of the match award twice after he helped United beat Liverpool 2-1 at Old Trafford and Southampton 1-0 at St Mary’s Stadium.
The former Ajax defender is on the verge of winning the Manchester United‘s Best Player of the Month of August award, after he was shortlisted alongside Tyrell Malacia and Raphael Varane as nominees for the award.
Martinez is highly likely to maintain his starting role against Leicester City on Thursday night, although Victor Lindelof has returned to training, after the Sweden international miss the first four games with an injury.
