“I think he’s trying to be a hero.”
Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel criticized Lisandro Martinez immediately after United’s loss to Brighton.
United lost 1-0 at home to Brighton in the fifth round of the English Premier League (EPL) at Old Trafford at 11 p.m. on Nov. 16. The Seagulls conceded goals from Danny Welbeck in the 20th minute, Pascal Gross eight minutes into the second half, and Joao Pedro in the 26th, and were only saved by a 28th-minute Hannibal Mebry consolation goal, assisted by Lisandro Martinez. The crowd booed when coach Eric Tenhagh brought on Marcial in the 19th minute for Rasmus Højlund, who was born in 2003. It was the second consecutive 1-3 defeat against Arsenal and the second time in five games this season they have dropped to 13th place. It’s a bad atmosphere.
Schmeichel questioned Martinez’s positioning and decision-making more than Andre Onana’s mistake in conceding the goal to Gross. “It’s something that’s happening at United at the moment and it’s because of a very personal play,” he told the Premier League. “A player like Martinez, for example, is trying to be a hero. He’s trying to get in the box and block, and people know that. If you look at Martinez, you see him position himself right in front of the goalie.” “Martinez has to get low, not just stand there and try to block. If you want to block, you have to stand up straight, not turn around. It’s definitely not the right behavior for United.”바카라
United started the game well. After Welbeck’s opener, they were unlucky to have Hooper’s equalizer wiped out by VAR. After the game, Christian Eriksen told the BBC, “We have to look at ourselves. We changed a few things, but we played a disappointing game,” he reflected. “In the first half we had a lot of moments and dominated the game. We had a lot of possession, but we didn’t create many chances,” he lamented. “They scored with their first chance, they had possession with their system of play and we should have chased it down. We had chances to turn the game around.”
