Argentine defender Lisandro Martínez returned to play this Wednesday after three months inactive due to injury and played 45 minutes in the friendly that Manchester United beat Leeds United 2-0 in Norway.

The footballer from Entre Ríos, world champion in Qatar 2022, was a starter in the team led by the Dutchman Erik ten Hag, who played the first friendly of the preseason at the Ullevaal stadium in Oslo.

Martínez, who suffered a fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot on April 13 in the match against Sevilla for the Europa League, was replaced at halftime and watched the goals by youth players Noam Emeran and Joe Hugill from the outside.

In the English “red devils” Mason Mount was also presented, the brand new reinforcement from Chelsea in exchange for 64 million euros.

The Argentine forward Alejandro Garnacho, meanwhile, was not there as he is still on vacation and will join the squad in the coming days along with the rest of the internationals who participated in the FIFA date in June.

Manchester United’s next friendly will be on July 19 in the Scottish city of Edinburgh against Olympique de Lyon, a French team where Argentine Nicolás Tagliafico plays.
