Reports have confirmed that Lisandro Martínez suffered a sprained collateral ligament during Manchester United’s 3-0 win over West Ham on Sunday afternoon.

Old Trafford was bouncing as Manchester United thumped West Ham 3-0 thanks to a brilliant finish from Rasmus Højlund and a further two goals from Alejandro Garnacho.

It was Erik ten Hag‘s most convincing win of the campaign so far; however, there have been sour undertones after Lisandro Martínez had to be taken off due to a knee injury in the second half.

Following a tussle with Vladimir Coufal, Martínez was seen visibly struggling with his right knee, and although he tried to continue, he was taken off minutes later.

After the game, Erik ten Hag then said: “It seems bad. We have to wait and make the right diagnosis. At this moment, we are very sad. Hopefully, it is not too bad, but we can only pray. It looks like he has to sit some games out injured again.”

He continued: “It doesn’t look good. He is very sad, and we all feel for him. It’s a personal disaster.”

And now, Gaston Edul has issued the following update surrounding Martínez.

“Lisandro Martínez has a sprained collateral ligament. The worst scenario was ruled out. It is between a month and a half and two months of recovery. You don’t have to have surgery. Good news,” he wrote.

Fabrizio Romano has added that The Reds hope to have Martinez back after the international break in March.

United will be without their Argentine for another period of time but many will be relieved that is it not an ACL injury which could’ve had a much longer timeframe of recovery.
