Jabba's Comments

Signed by GG in the latter half of the 97-98 season, he was initially thought to be either a solution to Leeds' intractable left-back problem, or a replacement/back-up for Molenaar or Wetherall in the centre of the defence.

Having done a very solid job as one of our 3 centrebacks (with Molenaar and Radebe), he contributed to a solid unbeaten run at the start of the season as well as providing some good width when going forward. Unfortunately he fell victim to the disgraceful state of the pitch at Old Trafford, and was out for the rest of the season with cruciate ligament damage.

He's now nearly back to full fitness, and with Lucas Radebe away on international duty he might see a little bit of first team action to add to the reserves and bench appearances he's managed since returning in December. At the end of May 2000, Martin was transferred back to his native Austria so that he could get himself back to full fitness and have a decent chance of first-team football and he is now back as a regular in the national side.
