Guardiola laughs at Martínez discussion: “United paid it, Ten Hag knows him”

Lisandro Martínez is two heads smaller than Erling Haaland, his immediate opponent this weekend, in which Manchester City and Manchester United compete against each other. Martínezs height does not see City manager Pep Guardiola as an advantage for Haaland.
Martínez has been criticized many times for not being the tallest, yet the Argentine holds his own in the Premier League. Erling is bigger, that
s for sure. I always laugh when people underestimate players because of their height. I can now tell that he is a good player, Guardiola said at the press conference.
Hes a great player, aggressive, good build. United paid this for him (65 million euro, ed.) and Erik ten Hag knows him. Its not the first time hes played against longer strikers, he can deal with it, continues the Spaniard.
It
s important to be intelligent and courageous. Erling is bigger, but well see what happens.
