You’re not special – Souness hits Man Utd’s summer signing

Liverpool legend, Graeme Souness, has hit out at Manchester United’s summer signing, Lisandro Martinez.

Souness said Martinez is not special at anything, adding that if the defender comes against Manchester City’s Erling Haaland, it will be a mismatch.

Martinez joined Man United from Ajax earlier in the ongoing summer transfer window.

But Souness believes Martinez’s height will cause further problems down the road, particularly when he faces more physical strikers 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.
