Former English professional footballer Adebayo Akinfenwa has noted that height would be a major problem for Manchester United’s newly signed defender, Lisandro Martinez.



Manchester United announced on Saturday that Martinez has become their player, joining from Ajax.

Adebayo, a former Swansea City star, believes that the Argentina international would find it difficult to play against Manchester City’s Erling Haaland.

The former Ajax centre-back stands at 5ft 9in tall, a height that would be a mismatch for tall strikers in the Premier League.

And Adebayo is worried about the player’s height. “I do think a 5ft 9 centre-back is a little bit too small, but I don’t know anything about the individual,” he told talkSPORT.
If we ever get them in a cup game, he’s the one I am going to play on because I think there is a physical mismatch.
“Haaland will target him. When it comes down to being in the box, he is going to lose a certain number of headers.
“But time will tell.”
