The Red Devils face Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday and Martinez has revealed he will do whatever it takes to get his side over the line.

The 25-year old Argentine who is nicknamed ‘The Butcher’, says he sometimes finds it hard to control himself on the pitch.

Yeah. It is difficult. Sometimes I want to kill but you have to control as well.

Argentinian players are always like this, we are passionate. Football for us is everything so that is why we always give everything.
