Lisandro Martinez sends message to Raphael Varane after final Manchester United appearance

Lisandro Martinez has said it was a “pleasure” to play alongside Raphael Varane at Manchester United.

Varane made his final appearance for United at Wembley on Saturday, helping them beat Manchester City 2-1 in the FA Cup final. It was announced earlier this month that the Frenchman will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of June.

The former Lens ace joined United from Real Madrid in August 2021 and made almost 100 appearances for the club. Injuries, however, prohibited him from playing more games for the Reds.Varane made his first start since the 4-3 defeat to Chelsea on April 4 in the clash with City, enabling him to join forces with Martinez in the heart of the back four for one last time. The duo formed an excellent partnership last season and United, unfortunately, were unable to rely on it as much as they would have liked this term.
