Biography[edit]

Parma and loans[edit]

Born in Buenos Aires, Martínez moved to Italy in 2003.[1] He was a member of Parma's Primavera under-20 team.[2] At age 18, he was offered a professional contract of reported 5-year[3] (or 3+2 years, as N.O.I.F. of FIGC only allowed a maximum of 3-year for Italians "young professional"[4]). He made his Serie A debut on 27 April 2008, replaced Cristiano Lucarelli at 2nd half, at that time Parma already losing to Reggina 1–2. His primavera team-mate Aleksandar Prijović also substituted Daniele Dessena on that match, and Parma eventually 1–2 lost with Reggina.[5] Parma relegated to Serie B in June and Martínez was loaned to Ternana in August 2008.[6] He failed to made his club debut and left the club[7] for Carpenedolo in January 2009. On 1 September 2009 he left for South Tyrol[8] but in December 2009 returned to Parma for family reason.[9] In January 2010 he left for Swiss 1. Liga side Biaschesi.

AlbinoLeffe[edit]

On 12 July 2010, he was signed by Serie B side AlbinoLeffe[10] for free.[11] Since AlbinoLeffe had lost Francesco Ruopolo and Marco Cellini, Martínez formed a new striking line with Karamoko Cissé and Omar Torri, who played as backup players for AlbinoLeffe in the last season. The latter 2 scored 3 goals in the opening match, made AlbinoLeffe won fellow Serie B club Pescara 3–1 in Coppa Italia.[12] However he soon dropped from starting line-up.

Martínez did not play any game in 2011–12 Serie B and followed by the club relegation and heavy fine due to 2011 Italian football scandal, Martínez was signed by Cremonese in August 2012.[13]

On 31 January 2013 his contract was terminated in mutual consent and moved to Hungarian side Budapest Honvéd on the same day. He was presented on 1 February.[1] After spending five months at the club he joined defending champion Győri ETO.[14]

International career[edit]

Martínez made his U20 debut on 10 September 2008 against Switzerland U20, a 2008–09 Four Nations Tournament match.
