Man Utd staff bowled over by instant impact of Lisandro and Antony

Manchester United officials say Lisandro Martinez and Antony have lifted the atmosphere around the club.

The Manchester Evening News reports the pair have both made an instant impression on staff members behind the scenes.

When it comes to Martinez, it's said United workers have been 'struck' by the politeness of the 24-year-old.

They feel his fluent English has helped him to adjust to life in the Premier League, with the player described as 'particularly vocal in training'.

Martinez has also reportedly been helpful to the academy players who have been promoted to the first team.

And he's also been happy to involve himself with other age groups as he looks to make the most of his time at United.

Regarding Antony, staff members have 'buzzed off' the Brazilian's character and how happy he is to be at Old Trafford.
