After being bullied in Manchester United’s Saturday loss to Brentford, Gary Neville is not sure Lisandro Martinez can play in the middle of a defensive four.Information Guide Nigeria
Ben Mee easily outjumped the Argentine, a £56.7 million transfer from Ajax, on a set-piece, and the player was taken off with United trailing by four goals at halftime. Ivan Toney tormented the player at times.

Before Martinez came to the Premier League, his short stature (5’9″) was noted as a potential problem, and Brentford manager Thomas Frank later acknowledged that it was something they intentionally targeted.

Martinez will continue to be targeted, and the only remedy, according to United veteran Neville, who was also on the short side for a center-back before switching to right-back, is to move Martinez to the right-back position.
Asked if there was any role in the defence that Martinez would be capable of playing, Neville told Sky Sports: ‘Maybe on the left in a back three – that could potentially work.
‘Maybe playing in midfield, because we know he can do that. I think he’s got tenacity and, to be fair, I wouldn’t judge him at all at this moment in time.
‘But to say he could play in a back four away at Brentford against Toney and [Bryan] Mbeumo – he physically can’t compete with them.
