Anderlecht's newest recruit, midfielder Mario Martinez has talked to the press about his playing style and goals with his new team. RSCA have loaned the 20 year old, with an option to purchase him in April.

Anderlecht hopes Martinez will be a worthy back-up and eventual replacement for Boussoufa. And the young Honduran is ambitious:

"I will find it difficult to fight for a place in the team, but I am here to work hard. My strengths are my shot, the long ball and the stationary phase. Normally I provide a lot of assists each season. I can play from the right flank as a player, but I actually prefer playing in central midfield."

As a mid-season recruit, Martinez has little time to get up and running and prove himself. However he is full of confidence:

"But I feel no pressure. I'm still not in top form, but that is normal since my last match was in October (for Valerengen). My dream is to be in the World Cup, but first I have to fight for an Anderlecht spot."
