Man Utd ace Martinez stranded for Argentina duty over visa issues


Premier League stars Manchester United Lisandro Martinez alongside fellow Premier League star, Cristian Romero are among those who are stranded from the Argentina squad due to visa issues.

The mourning of Queen Elizabeth II has meant that the duo, who were meant to join up with their international teammates to take on Honduras and Jamaica in friendlies, have been in limbo.

According to TyC Sports, the US Embassy in England has been closed, which meant they could not get their visas in time to travel for the game.

Their clubs Manchester United and Tottenham may be pleased to know the players will miss at least one international match during this break.

Martinez has made an impressive start to life at Manchester United, earning a regular starting spot, while Romero is a key defender for Antonio Conte at Spurs.

Manchester United Football Club have definitely been on the up over the last few weeks. The Old Trafford club have improved under Erik ten Hag, with his new signings at the forefront of recent victories.

Perhaps the biggest plus has been the form of defender, Lisandro Martinez. The Argentine international struggled against Brentford, but has since bounced back in emphatic fashion, looking flawless in every match since.

Well, the 24-year-old was supposed to jet off to Miami to play for his country over the next week or so. However, in an odd story, The Mirror, who got the scoop from TyC Sports, are reporting that the United star has been ‘left stranded’ from international duty.

Apparently, the US Embassy in England has been closed, meaning the pair have not been able to get their visas in time. Whether the Embassy is now open remains to be seen.

As things stand, it’s unclear as to whether Argentina will press on without the Premier League duo for their game against Honduras, though you’d imagine there’s a genuine possibility that other players are called up instead.

If that does happen, it’d be to United’s benefit. At the end of the day, it’d mean more rest for Martinez ahead of a huge game against Manchester City in early October.
