Man Utd manager ten Hag: Eriksen, Martinez won't join us in Australia

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has said Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez will link up with their new teammates at Carrington.

United have announced the signings of Danish midfielder Eriksen and Ajax defender Martinez.

However, the pair won’t join their teammates in Australia as United play their last match against Aston Villa in Perth on Sunday before flying back to England.

“Unfortunately we cannot have them here in the tour, because at the moment they arrive here we will fly back,” ten Hag told MUTV.

“So that doesn’t make sense. We cannot wait to involve them in our squad and the fans also cannot wait.

“Every year it’s the same as a trainer, you want your squad complete as soon as possible. But also fans look forward to new players and what is the squad and what can they contribute and they want an identification.”
