Thankfully, those fears have been allayed by Manchester United manager Ten Haag, who has denied Martinez has an Achilles injury. Tyc Sports journalist Gaston Edul, who worked closely with Argentina during the World Cup, now has some information on Martinez’s condition.
He tweeted last night: “Lisandro Martinez will not be doing any more scouting today [Thursday]. Tomorrow [Friday] he will know what he has.
“Achilles tendon has been ruled out (good news). He left on crutches. It could be the 5th metatarsal and the prognosis is better than expected.”
Early on, there were concerns that Lisandro Martinez had injured his Achilles tendon.
Martinez went to catch the ball and felt something on the back of his ankle and immediately fell to the ground in great pain. In an in-studio appearance on BT Sport, former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes revealed that Argentina international Martinez suffered an Achilles tendon injury after a slight fall.

“It’s hard for us to predict, but I think he’s hit his Achilles’ heel. That’s bad.” said the former midfielder. “I remember playing with Nicky Butt and he did the same thing. He asked, “Who kicked me?” he asked.

Martínez was carried off the field by international teammates Marcos Acuna and Gonzalo Montiel.
Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel believes Sevilla’s thunderbolts helped them equalize late on as they leveled in extra time thanks to a Harry Maguire own goal. Dane told BBC Radio 5 Live: “The Sevilla players seemed happy to have him off the pitch. No, they wanted him to start.” “His reception didn’t stop their momentum. Manchester United used five players to make sure he didn’t come back.
“We didn’t give the manager or the players a chance to speak. The United players should have stopped, left him on the pitch, [the medics] came to get him and then come back together.
“That’s what the players have to do and the lack of leadership on the field. Harry Maguire should have handled this situation. “If the manager saw his player being dragged by two opposing players, he should have stopped him.”

Ten Haag explained that it is too early to explain exactly what is going on with the 25-year-old centre-back. “I was never involved,” Ten Haag said. – We’ll have to wait.
