Former Manchester United defender Daley Blind has hit out at critics of Lisandro Martinez.

The Dutchman said that people criticising the Argentine are wrong to write him off because of his height.

Martinez joined Manchester United from Ajax for £56.7 million last summer, but many had doubts regarding his height.

The Argentine defender is 5 foot 9, and there were several question marks if this would be problematic in the Premier League.

He was a huge success in his debut season as he forged a formidable partnership with Raphael Varane at the heart of the Red Devils’ defence.

The 2022 World Cup winner made 45 appearances across competitions, helping his side keep 20 clean sheets.

Blind, who played for Manchester United between 2014 and 2018, has praised Martinez while hitting out at his doubters.

He said, via UtdPlug. “Martinez is a great centre-back. He is so aggressive, he’s really good with his feet, he’s really good at tackling, you can’t write him off just because he’s not the height you expect him to be”.

The Argentine impressed against Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic. Blind added:”I think he showed that he is capable of everything in the Premier League”.
