If you want me, I’ll go to Manchester United instead of Arsenal The 87.6 billion defender followed his teacher
Manchester United’s Ricandro Martinez, 24, was chosen by manager Eric Ten Hagh.
British media Daily Mail reported the back story of Martinez’s transfer in an interview with coach Ten Hagh on the 21st (Korea Standard Time).
In an interview with Dutch media “Bootball International,” director Ten Hagh said, “I had a good time at Ajax. We brought Ajax back to the top of Europe. The project was precious to me.” Ten Hach played Ajax from December 2017 to May 2022.
“Martinez wanted to leave Ajax. He would have gone to Arsenal if we hadn’t taken him,” he added.
“Arsenal wanted him. He was a top target. Then Martinez called me. ‘Director, listen. I’m leaving Ajax. “I can sign with Arsenal, but if you want me, I’ll go to Manchester United.”
Martinez has played for Ajax since 2019. He is a center back, but he is so versatile that he can play as a left-back. It is also helpful in the process of attack development with excellent pass sense and foot skills. He has a good defense. It is 175 centimeters tall and somewhat small, but covers it with jumping and elasticity.
Martinez has won two Dutch league titles with coach Ten Hagh. In the 2021-22 season, he was so influential in the team that he was selected as Ajax’s Player of the Year. He scored one goal and four assists in a total of 37 games, and started in 23 of the league’s 24 games.
He had the will to move to the Premier League. Last summer, British media ‘Express’ said, “He is determined to move to the Premier League this summer and will try to transfer to either Manchester United or Arsenal.”
His choice was United. In fact, it can be said that he followed his teacher. The media said, “Arsenal was close to recruiting until Manchester United jumped into the recruitment race. However, he decided to reunite with coach Ten Hagh and called Mikel Arteta to inform him of his decision 파워볼사이트
