He also seemed to be hopeful to return to his favorite club after the pandemic ends. But for now, he has to make the decision as there is still no remedy for this.
Martin has been included in the opt-out list of the 2020 season. The game officials stated that they are quite prepared for the list to get longer as everyone is allowed to be cautious of health. But they are trying hard to take necessary safety measures from the Camp session of September.
It seems that the 2020 season is going to miss some of the influencial faces on the field!
