Fans in stitches after Lisandro Martinez slide tackles his own teammate with studs up while celebrating goal

Fans in stitches after Lisandro Martinez slide tackles his own teammate with studs up while celebrating goal

Lisandro Martinez may have taken his celebrations a step too far.

Manchester United overcame a one-goal deficit late in the second half to advance to the FA Cup quarter-finals with a win against West Ham United.

Passionate celebrations have become commonplace for Manchester United players in recent times, although a certain fiery Argentinian by the name of Lisandro Martinez may have taken it a step too far.

Against West Ham, the Red Devils endured a tough first half where they failed to create any meaningful chances.

In the second half, West Ham took a controversial shock lead after Said Benrahma rattled the ball into the net, however, the replays seemed to show the ball was out of play in the build-up. But VAR gave the goal.

An own-goal equaliser gave United a lifeline, but as the game approached the 90th minute it appeared as though the game was headed for a draw.

Up stepped the star boy Alejandro Garnacho with a stunning touch, and an equally beautiful finish into the right corner of the net to put United ahead.

Brazilian midfielder Fred finished off the game a few minutes later with the third goal as he wheeled away to the corner flag in celebration.

His teammates soon joined, understandably elated by the turnaround.

As the Red Devils came sliding in to join Fred, one player may have mistimed his celebration to cause an absolutely hilarious collision.

Martinez came hurling in, and in true aggressive centre-back fashion went in with two feet and his studs showing as if he was playing Sunday League football.

He appeared to catch both Wout Weghorst and Fred with the ‘challenge’ while the two players were attempting to celebrate the goal.

The nature of the ‘tackle’ has fans online in stitches.

One wrote: “Martinez has no chill.”

Another added: “Man just slide tackled into the celebration.”

A third commented: “He just two footed two of our players.”

A fourth quipped: “That’s a red, he came studs up.”

If there’s any indication of the type of player the World Cup winner is, then this celebration surely shows it perfectly.

United move on to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup where they are set for a matchup with Fulham.

They’ll be hoping to replicate their Carabao Cup success with another cup run and trophy.
