Carlos Martinez: 'Manchester United match is a dream'

Real Sociedad defender Carlos Martinez says that he cannot wait to face Manchester United in the Champions League this evening.

Real Sociedad defender Carlos Martinez has admitted that it is a "dream" to face Manchester United in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Spanish outfit, who lost 1-0 at Old Trafford in the reverse fixture, head into the match bottom of Group A having failed to collect a point thus far.

"For players such as Imanol [Agirretxe] and me, this is the dream of every player, growing up in this club and getting to play in this type of big game," Martinez told reporters at a press conference.

"But other than that, when we start the game and put to one side everything that we may do, this is a game that we will remember for a long time.

"Mood in the camp? We have picked up 10 points in the first 12 weeks of the season and the team is much better, we have picked up more morale and we are prepared to face the match against Manchester United."

Martinez has been ever-present for Sociedad this season.
